Beat up Big Eagle RR shuttle hopper at Winifrede Jct, WV, Oct 2014 -Stuart Thayer

For decades, the Big Eagle and its predecessor, the Winifrede RR, used old beat up hoppers to shuttle coal from its parent company’s tipple up Fields Creek. Note the lack of load limit and other markings necessary for interchange service. Oct 2014 -Stuart Thayer
