This abandoned railway line ran from Statesville on the Southern (NS) line to Asheville from Salisbury, NC, to Mooresville on the NS line from Charlotte to Winston-Salem. The section from Troutman to Mooresville is officially abandoned, probably sometime in the late 1970s. The line has been cut just South of Statesville, and cross ties have been removed around Barium Springs. A trestle has apparently been removed South of Barium Springs (see picture). Towns on this line from Statesville are Barium Springs, Troutman, Shepherds and into North Mooresville.
