Building Four Mile Railroad
Contractors yesterday started forces of men at work on the extension of the Norfolk & Wesrtern from Pageton to the United States Steel Company's operations No. 12. The road will be about four miles long. About 200 men are put to work yesterday and the contractors hope to have the grading done by the first of the year. R. M. Bibb and Luck & Co. are the main contractors.
[Apparently the "south" end of the Tug Fork Branch was at Pageton in 1908 and this extension went 3.19 miles farther "south" to later- day North Fork of Tug Branch Jct. where it was another 0.55 miles to U. S. Steel No. 12. The line was later extended both ways from the junction. Anyone have more details?]
