Early Railroad Logo

Just for at least a note from my research on the North Carolina Branch, the line out of Pulaski to the northwest is called the Altoona Railroad and was built by the Bertha Mineral Facilities Company in 1880.

The map is curious, and incomplete with no locations along the line listed. Does not help much, but does narrow down the date. I have a large file on the Virginia and Kentucky including a large wall map, I’ll try to pull those out and take a look
