Narrows to Suiter

The New River, Holston and Western Railroad

Point of Interest

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

A rough timeline of this abandoned railway, at a total length of 43 miles:

      Suiter        Rocky Gap            Narrows
1903                                 |------| (3 miles built, NRH&W)
1912                    |-- NRH&W ---|
1914    |---- NRH&W ----|
1919    |---- Sold to Norfolk & Western ----|
1946    |-------  abandoned  ---------------|

The right of way is state route 61 from Narrows to Rocky Gap. Great route for long level bike rides
