So, those are the quick historical details. A much more detailed review can be found in "West Virginia Central & Pittsburg Railway - A Western Maryland Predecessor", by Alan Clarke.
Let’s take a look at the geography and where else Davis and Elkins set down rails. Please refer to the map to offer perspective on the rails built from Elkins. Elkins was the junction of three branch lines; the Huttonsville Branch, the Belington Branch, and the Coal & Iron branch.
|The South Elkins story continues with a look at each branch line.
