The Haysi Branch
— User Comments —
This branch served the Mighty Clinchfield Coal Company's Crooked Branch and Pittco-Greenbriar loadouts as well as Rual Fuller's Nation Energy Preparation Plant. Rual had a 25 car sidetrack,Crooked Branch had a 50 car sidetrack and Pittco had a pair of sidetracks that held 72 cars altogether. Rual Idled his Prep. Plant in 1993,Clinchfield closed and tore the Crooked Branch tipple down that same year. Pittco lasted until March of 2007 when Dickinson Russel Coal Co closed it down.
