Charter for Railway Line
Secretary of State Reed has issued a charter to the Hinton Street Car and Transportation company, of Hinton, to build a line from Hinton via Union, Avis and Red Sulphur Springs to the Norfolk and Western and Virginian railways at the mouth of East river [Glen Lyn, VA], Mercer county. Capital stock $50,000, incorporators, James T. McCreery, W. H. Sawyers and others of Hinton.
[Union is a long ways off a direct line from Hinton to Rich Creek and Glen Lyn. I hope none of your ancestors invested in this scheme.]
