  Photo Looking west, Tug Tower is in the center right. Here the double track Tug Fork Branch diverged from the main line and extends southward across the view toward Gary. Tug also controlled the downtown passenger station loop in the center of the photo. The Tug Fork Branch was electrified as far up as Wilco Yard, but the catenry is gone by this point in time. (Photo by Robert L. Harvey/Everett N. Young Collection)
  Photo At the far left is N&W Bridge 893-A over the Tug Fork at the west portal of Welch Tunnel, which is hidden from view behind the four-story building. In the center is the McDowell County Court House. On the steps leading down to the street in front (left of building in this view), Sid Hatfield and Ed Chambers were gunned down by Baldwin-Felts Detective Agency mine guards in retribution for having lost seven of their cohorts in the "Matewan Massacre" of 1920. The N&W depot is at the lower right. (Photo by Robert L. Harvey/Everett N. Young Collection)
