>> It is very desirable that this Extension be completed, and the connection made
with the Cape Fear and Yadkin Valley Railroad as early as practicable, in
order that the line may be in active operation and business developed prior
to the opening of the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago. The line that
will be formed by your Ohio and North Carolina Extensions will be the
shortest and most direct route between the South Atlantic States and Chicago
and the Northwest.
Aaaah... if only they had added "...and Pacific" to their corporate identity! Had they done so, they would no doubt have been hauling the hottest Limited of the country over a four-track speedway. It's all in the Marketing, ya know.
