Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Marion and Rye Valley Railway was a standard gauge logging railroad that ran from an intersection with the Norfolk and Western Railway at Marion, Virginia, southward to Sugar Grove, Virginia. At Sugar Grove, it intersected with the Virginia Southern Railroad which ran from Sugar Grove, across Iron Mountain, through Troutdale and then westward to Fairwood. There was also a branch from the wye track at Sugar Grove that went eastward toward Camp, Virginia. The two railroads combined formed a line operating some 27 or so miles. Both were initially owned separately, but eventually fell under the same management and ownership. The main line featured four switchbacks between Currin Valley, south of Marion, and Teas, just west of Sugar Grove, and another set of switchbacks between Sugar Grove and Troutdale at the top of Iron Mountain.show more
