Railroading in North Carolina

Record #:
Although passenger travel has declined on railroads, freight tonnage has increased, rising from 70.5 million tons in 1960 to 96.7 tons in 1965. Today twenty-seven railroads operate in the state on 4,408 miles of track. Only seven of North Carolina's one hundred counties have no railroad track mileage now in use.
