MATOAKA A DIVISION POINT ON DEEPWATER
Bluefield, W. Va, March 28 -- Orders have been issued by the Deepwater Railroad,
making Matoaka in this county, a temporary division point and operations will
begin as soon as the bridges are completed. At this point freight will be
transferred to the Norfolk and Western. The division from Matoaka to Deepwater
will be 35 miles in length.
It is also stated that shops will be located at Princeton provided the water
supply is adequate. If not all of the shops will be placed at Victoria Virginia.
