|The importance of the Pocahontas Division to the N&W Railway cannote be overemphasized. Embodying the very heart of the system, the balance of the railroad could be seen as extensions, meant to forward the unending trainloads of coal to markets both domestic and international. The Pocahontas Division was the largest and most complex of the N&W operating divisions, running more trains and moving more tonnage than some other entire railroads. This books takes the reader from the first coal train out of Pocahontas, Virginia up to the N&W/Southern merger in 1982.
