If the Southside Railroad is what became the Durham Branch of the N&W, the

through Lynchburg in 1912. The location can still be seen by looking at

Our daughter was in college there four years. To us it has always

No idea of the junction of SS & V&T!

Mr. Wiley's recent post on railroading around Lunchburg [sic... my

Can one of the "locals" enlighten me?
