Interior view of the closed car and locomotive shop at Cowen, West Virginia, in 2005. A sentiment is written on the wall in the former Baltimore and Ohio Railroad building: "My Dad Work Here 1969-1999." The shop was used for a while by CSX Transportation as a car shop. Cowen Yard was a remote outpost in the coal country for the B&O. It included full locomotive servicing facilities and a large railroad YMCA for crews.
