Mileage in West Virginia Has Been Greatly Increased--Proposed Extensions

The progress of the construction of railways in this state is attracting great attention among all the railroad officials, and the mileage has been greatly increased this year over that of any previous two.
At Clarksburg the Fairmont & Clarksburg Traction Company will build an extension of the eight miles from Clarksburg to Salem.
At Gassaway the Elk & Little Kanawha railroad company will build a narrow gauge line from Gassaway on the mouth of the Otter to Rosedale, going down the Elk river.
[The next paragraph referring to Morgantown is blurred on the microfilm and is omitted here.]
In addition to the above the Virginian has filed maps and profiles for two branches, one six miles long up Flipping creek and the other seven miles up Crane creek to Mora and Sagamore.
[This is just a little follow-up article to the one posted here May 28 about these VGN branches.]
