The book covers the North Carolina end of the Norfolk & Western branch which started at the main line con- nection at Abingdon, Va., and was made fa- mous by O.

The book covers the history of the line from its inception before World War I as the Virginia Carolina Rail- road through its abandonment in 1977. It’s packed with nicely printed, well-captioned b&w photos which show not only the railroad and its equipment but also its environs, in- cluding the towns and industries it served.
