Looking west and east at the former signal for the spring switch to the Sincel Branchline on September 9, 2009. The WM signal was replaced with a B&O signal during the Chessie System rule perhaps so train crews off the B&O would not be confused with the signals meaning.

The WM main line is straight ahead and the Sincel Branch is to the right. CSX has removed the switch disconnecting the former WM mainline to Elkins from the active track. The second photo was taken from the former WM Elkins-Cumberland mainline looking at WM Sincel Branch as it curves away to the coal mine. (September 9, 2009)

A WM sign once stood on this trackside pole here along the WM main at Sincel. (September 9, 2009)
