I have been enjoying the entries on the mailing list for over two years now and have learned a lot just from reading the ongoing discussions.
Could someone possibly tell me if the N&W serviced an Armco Steel mine located at Nellis, WV?
This particular mine (and the town) opened in the 1920s and closed in the late 1950s. For about the first 10 years of the town's existence the only way in or out was the railroad but I don't know if it was the N&W or C&O.
If anyone can shed some light, I would really appreciate it.
