Join us as we go back in time when America’s railroads were operating at full capacity during the early winter of 1943, as vast amounts of weapons, supplies, raw materials, and people were moved on the C&O Hinton Division’s Alleghany & New River Sub-Divisions for the war effort.
Narrow gauge railroads are also doing their part, as the Mann’s Creek RR interchanges coal, logs, and timber, on the dual gauge tracks at Sewell, WV.
