Newgate was the first location west out of Hagerstown Yard. There were no local industries here at Newgate in WM days. However, there are now 3 today under CSX operation. The first is located just around the curve west of the I-81 bridge out of Hagerstown Yard. The first is a feed mill of some sort as the second industry is also. The second industry is located just east of the Zeiger Rd. crossing. Staples is served here also. The track into Staples leads off of the main right under the I-70 overpass. Not many trains run through the area today. There is only one scheduled train, D721. Other trains run as needed. Train D721 will usually leave Hagerstown around noon and head west with its train in tow. It will drop its train just west of the switch at the first industry or industry it needs to switch. After switching one or more of the industries it will recouple to its train and head west to Cheery Run where it will run on B&O tracks to Cumberland. the train will usually return the next day designated as train D720.
