Notes
Survey number HAER WV-42
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-26).
Significance: The Thurmond Yards were established during the 1880s to facilitate the transportation of the New River Gorge's smokeless coal to markets along the C&O Railroad. As a maintenance and repair facility the Thurmond Yards were a major regional feature along the C&O throughout the steam engine era. As a major assembling point for coal cars from different mines, the marshalling yards at Thurmond were credited with handling more coal, and thus producing more revenue, than all but a few such facilities. Finally, as a town where only trains traveled down Main Street, Thurmond gained a reputation as a regional center of commerce and recreation, legal or otherwise.
