Yancey Railroad Locomotive, Micaville, NC | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
Rusting away in Micaville, North Carolina is the most obvious remnant of a railroad. It sits beside the road on property of the former Yancey Railroad. The locomotive is a 65 ton Vulcan Locomotive Works product. It still bears the paint of its former owner, the Narragansett Pier Railroad, located in Rhode Island. Number 40 was built in 1943 for the U.S. Navy. In 1963 it went to the NPRR which ceased operations around 1981. The Yancey RR acquired it in 1981. NPRR40 was never lettered for the Yancey which ceased operations soon after. It is a rare locomotive and may be the last of its kind in existance. Note Sept 14, 2012, still sitting there.

Railroad history is probably my second love, behind Civil War history. The Toe River Valley has some great railroad history that I’m sure that I’ll spend a lot of time talking about.
