I have always been amazed even as a young lad, watching what was called "Motors" by the road men, drag the long trains up the mountain East of Bluefield. In 1915, electricity was still in such a early stage of infancy, how could these machines have developed such a tremendous amount of power? Also, why did N&W decide to discontinue the system?
