2 & 3- The old B&O rail yard
4- The foundation of the original B&O roundhouse.

Those black tankers in pic #2 were brought to Vincennes out of Evansville on Q596. Now I know they went east on J700. I wonder what those are doing over there? Does Mississippi Tank have a place in Washinton now?

Here are a couple of photos of the track at Cannelburg. The grade is rather substantial although the east shot doesn't really depict it. The west shot using a telephoto makes me wonder if the track flattens out of begins an uphill grade.
