Along with Jim's info on the AM&O, here is some info about the Virginia &
Tennessee Railroad. In June of 1855, the Daily Dispatch, a Richmond
newspaper, carried a series of stories about a trip to Southwest Virginia.
Seventeen members of the Richmond Board of Trade were invited by the
Virginia and Tennessee Railroad to travel along the rail line to both view
the railroad and to see the country that it passed through. The series of
articles chronicles their trip.

It is an interesting look at pre-Civil War Southwest Virginia.
