Cherry Run was a connection and interchange point with the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. The WM had a small yard at Cherry Run that was served by WM freight trains that had stopped a Big Pool, dropped their train, and backed down to the yard to set off or pickup cars from the B&O. In the early steam days there was also a wye maintained here along with a joint WM/B&O station. Today Miller Tower is gone. It was closed by CSX and now sits in several pieces at the Martinsburg roundhouse. Miller Tower once controled the interlocking with the WM and B&O's lowline and mainline. B&O's lowline is the original route of the B&O, later B&O built a new "shorter" route but it has steeper grades. The old route runs from Millers to West Cumbo.
