Was the American Viscose plant ever built in Radford? Did it operate? At the last archives
session was looking at "proposed" drawing for trackage from Radford across New river to plant
site (dated 1946). The bridge was built, and still stands (builder plated dated 1947). However
I have never heard talk of the Radford Viscose plant (people working there, etc.). Also I have
never seen photos of any railroad equipment on the "Viscose" bridge.

Was the bridge ever used in revenue service???

Googling finds info on the Roanoke plant (1917-1958).,_Virginia
