View Full Version : Retired Yard Office

The vacant C&O yard office in St. Albans, WV, formerly VF Cabin, is now used by the St. Albans Police Department SWAT team and K9 teams for training. CSX allows the training since the building is no longer used by the railroad and the added police presence reduces vandalism.
As a cop and a railfan, training here is bittersweet. I can remember when this was a busy place, with the St. Albans Yardmaster, Coal River Sub. Dispatcher and crews coming and going 24/7.
This is my K9 partner, Deuce, out the window after a bad guy during a training session.
