CH&FR Announces Expansion to Glover’s Bend

Dateline: July 15, 2010

The Chestnut Hill & Frost River announced this morning plans to begin construction on a new line through the town of Glover’s Bend, WV.  The line will serve a general freight house and several industries in the town, as well as serving a mine in the vicinity.  Twice daily passenger service will be provided as well.

CH&FR has contracted with FHS Precision Surveying and Measurement Co. of Las Cruces, NM for the surveying and laying out the line.  CH&FR declined to comment on the construction contracts, as the bidding process is not yet complete.

The new line is expected to provide a significant boost in jobs for the region, as well as increased convenience and access to services for the residents of the town.

Glover’s Bend is a small but thriving town located South of Huntington, WV, not far from the mouth of Watash Creek on the Tug Fork River.  The town features a scenic overlook on its namesake bend in the creek.

Construction is expected to progress in stages, with different sections of the main line, mine tipple, town branch and yard constructed as time and resources permit.  Progress on the surveying and grading can be followed on the website as part of the 2010 Summer Layout Party project.



  1. Hey now I am over here visiting your site after I saw about your blog on N-Scale,net. Another interesting resource for eventually building my N-scale setup.
