I drive south to visit family in Greensboro, NC about once a year. We go
I-81 and pick up 220 in Roanoke. Heading south out of Roanoke is a single track
line that snakes its way
south. Twice I have seen trains on it. Once with a High Hood 4-axle geep and
a short consist. The other was 50 or so hopper cars with 3 units pulling and
2 pushing. I would
like to know anything anyone can share about this branch. Where does it go?
What was it
built for? What kind of traffic does it handle now? It looks well
maintained. Thanks.
