Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad Middle Creek Subdivision
The Chesapeake & Ohio Railroad (C&O) Middle Creek Subdivision extended from the C&O’s Big Sandy Subdivision at Prestonsburg, Kentucky to David.
In 2004, the successor to the C&O, CSX Transportation, filed to abandon on all but the first mile of track on the Middle Creek Subdivision, 1 citing a lack of traffic on the line since the early 1990s. 2 3 Due to the complications of railbanking and the effect on the Middle Creek National Battlefield, the branch was not abandoned outright. 4
