*North Fork -- Norfolk & Western Branch Line*, second book in NWHS's Branch
Line series, is a soft-cover publication using 104 pages, 84 black/white
pictures and 77 maps and charts to tell the story of the 7.3 miles of
railroad that ran from Northfork to Crumpler in McDowell County, West
Virginia. The branch line operated from 1891 to 1986 and produced nearly
120 million tons of coal from 12 mining operations over its operating life.
NWHS's newest publication uses construction records, track charts, siding
agreements, contracts, maps and photographs to tell the why, how, who, what
and when of this branch of the N&W. Learn why the coal operators had to pay
the construction costs. Learn how the branch line changed over the years.
There are photographs from the 1890s, 1912 topology maps and modern road
maps for the railfan. Detailed tipple track charts aid the model railroader
in building realistic model railroad mining operations.
