It's the NS "Appalachia District" which runs from Norton, VA to Bulls Gap, TN. Last time I was there it was pretty dead. Nothing but coal loads and empties. You do get some CSX trackage rights coal trains too off of the L&N at Big Stone Gap (which get off near Kingsport at "Frisco".

Ron Flannery can give you more detail about actual frequency because he lives in Big Stone Gap. I have heard traffic is WAY down.

It's a VERY scenic line and there are LOTS of great photo vantage points, but the challenge lately is finding a train...
