59 miles between Burkeville, VA and Clarksville, VA


The Virginia Southern Division became the BB’s third division when Buckingham Branch leased from Norfolk Southern the 59-mile section of track for operation between Burkeville, VA and Clarksville, VA in 2009.  The Virginia Southern interchanges with Norfolk Southern at Burkeville.  The BB Z523 train crew is based in Keysville and provides train services on the Virginia Southern.  The Virginia Southern track crosses scenic Buggs Island Lake at Clarksville.  The BB has transload sites available at Clarksville and two sites at Keysville.  Points of origin and destination for freight include Burkeville, Green Bay, Meherrin, Chase City, Keysville and Clarksville.
