• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

for what it's worth...

From what I've read on the web, the South Branch Valley RR is operated by the WV State Rail Authority, which I believe is a part of WV-DOT. Any radio licenses they have might be listed under "WV, State of", or "WV SRA", or who knows what?

One Google response I got from this page:
http://members.tripod.com/columbus_east/train.shtml
yielded this listing:
South Branch Valley RR 31.240 General

There's a railroad forum that is dedicated to SBVR. You might want to enroll and pose your question there as those folks seem to know their stuff:
http://mountainstaterails.net/index.php?showforum=15

The RadioRef WIKI has a pretty comprehensive listing of known RR freq's and ranges of freq's from which to start searches with a scanner.

Good luck.
