Wrong line. The Grassy Run Branch/Extension began just north of Hickman and went west past Coal Run to a bit east of St. Paul. The Hocking Extension split off at Coal Run and went north and northwest for about a mile. The former appears on current USGS topos and both are present in 1939.
The line you have here is the Fairmont, Morgantown and Pittsburg Railroad, merged into CSX in 1989.
