WORK ON VIRGINIAN
Regular Trains Running From Meherrin to Norfolk Before Long
The track laying force on the Virginian (Tidewater) railway has reached Meherrin. The force is now busy putting in a side track there and it is expected that before very long regular trains will be running from Meherrin to Norfolk. The laying of the steel rails will be carried on as rapidly as possible from Meherrin west, though the work is necessarily slow, because of the small force of men employed and the bad condition of the cuts.
