Abstract:
The Virginia Creeper was a famous mixed freight-passenger train line that existed in western North Carolina and operated from 1911 until 1963. The name came from the slow progress the trains experienced traveling through the mountains. The line carried mail, logs, and coal from North Carolina into bordering states. The line lost relevancy with the induction of cars and roadways which bypassed the slow tracks.
