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