Saddle bound 24 page pamphlet about the C&O at Hawks Nest, the deepest part of the New River Gorge in W. Va. It was here in 1873 that the spike was driven which completed the two segments of the C&O between Richmond and Huntington. A branch line, one of the earliest to tap mines off the C&O mainline, served coal mines at Ansted up a steep grade. In the early 20th Century a second line up the South side of the river branched from the original mainline here. This pamphlet documents the tumultuous history of this locale, documents the structures of the railway and the town, and gives data on the coal output from the branch. Color photos on covers and many B&W in side. Map, diagrams, tables, comprehensive text.
