Hello C.S.R.R. Manager
The Washington & Plymouth RR operated between the two towns in Eastern North Carolina. This line was later absorbed in to the original Norfolk Southern 1900 -1974.
This track is still in operation and serves a large paper mill.

Hey Guys
I don't know about mighty Narrow Gauge East or not. There were sure  some interesting operations most were lumber related and died when the timber was cut out.The Surry, Sussex and Southampton Railway of Virgina was one of these and there were hundreds off Swamp RRds in the great Dismal Swamp. The Arbuckle Timber & Stave Co lasted into the late 20s it was mananged by Surry Parker The inventor of the Surry Parker Log loader.The Mt Airy & Eastern Ry was another neat RR operating in the Granite Quarries at Mt Airy NC into Virgina.Yes there is not as much information on the small lines but it is out there if you look hard enough.I have listed some links to info on the web of the railroads that I have mentioned. And remember we had mining in the south also in a two county area of central NC we had iron and coal mining dating back to the Civil war , later they mined shale and talc and later clay for brickmaking all served by early narrow gauge RRds.

Thanks Alan Ashworth
