The Dumps Creek extension of the Carolina, Clinchfield and Ohio Railway [Became N&W's Dumps Creek branch in 1956.] will be shipping coal over the new rails by March 23. This statement was made last night by a gentleman who is close to the management of the road and who should know. At Present the forces at work on the extension are busy with bridge work. Six miles of grading have been completed and three miles of track has been laid. This work will connect the road with the Norfolk and Western at Kiser [Renamed Carbo somewhere in 1919-1920.] from which point the Norfolk and Western tracks will be used as far as St. Paul. From that point south the road will use its own rails until it reaches Spartanburg.
