  I believe you are correct. We don't have many New River Railroad drawings
in the collection and this is the first time I have seen the logo.  I did
find a "New River Rail Road" letter head in the archives collection but
there is no logo:


I have also seen them referred to as "New River RR, Mining & Manufacturing
Company". In Princes book (Page 44) he has in parentheses New River RR so I
guess they went by the long and short names.

Wikipedia shows it as "New River Mining and Railroad Company".

Thanks for id info on the logo!
