West Virginia & Pittsburg Railway: A Western Maryland Predecessor  ~  by Alan Clarke
West Virginia & Pittsburg Railway: A Western Maryland Predecessor
"Beginning as a narrow gauge line in 1880, its name and gauge changed in 1881 and in the ensuing years it opened a huge swathe of timber and coal territory in northern West Virginia to use, creating such towns as Elkins, Davis, and Thomas. A major connection was made with the C&O's Greenbrier Branch at Durbin, W. Va. in 1900. Sold to the Gould interests in 1902 it became an important part of the Western Maryland Railway in 1905 and contributed heavily to that road's prosperity in the coal and lumber trade down to modern times. . . . The story is carried down through the WM and Chessie System eras to today's' CSX operations on the remaining lines. A must for those interested in West Virginia, mountain railroading, and coal and lumber development. "
