C&O Railway at Hawks Nest, WV

  • Model: BK-00-228


Add to Cart:

Special issue of the C&O Historical Magazine devoted entirely to the C&O a Hawks Nest, W. Va. and the Hawks Nest Branch. It is still available for the special price of $3.00. The "last spike" of the C&O was driven at Hawks Nest, deep in New River gorge, on Jan. 29, 1873, uniting the C&O's lines that had been building for some years from both the east and west. Much was made of this joining as it realized George Washington's ancient dream of "The Great Connection," uniting the vast resources of the continent with the commerce and industry of the coast and the world. He saw it being done by a canal, but the C&O was finally the instrument that fulfilled this great hope.
