There are conflicting oral histories about the terminus of the railroad in Kibler Valley. Some say there was a turntable near the Danube Presbyterian Church and others believe there was Y-shaped turn around a WYE that allowed the train to turn around or possibly back up another line to a splash dam further upstream along the Dan River where logs were floated down for loading on the railroad.
