The Great Smoky Mountain Railroad between Dillsboro and Andrews, NC
was never a part of the Norfolk and Western. The GSMR was once part of
the former Southern Railway (and later Norfolk Southern)'s Murphy
Branch that ran from Asheville, NC to Murphy, NC. The rail line from
Dillsboro to Andrews was sold by NS in 1988 to the Great Smoky
Mountains Railway, which later changed its' name to the Great Smoky
Mountains Railroad in either late 1999 or 2000 after the line was
purchased by American Heritage Railways.
