The Sutton Branch was built by the West Virginia & Pittsburgh Railroad in 1898. The following year, it was purchased by the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad which then abandoned the line in 1930. A topographical map from 1907 shows the short branch line (highlighted for visibility). It split from the B&O Virginia and Pittsburg Branch at Flatwoods (at the top right) and headed south to Sutton (bottom left).
