Fairfax to Vienna, VA
Built in the late 1800s, this line ran between Vienna and Fairfax, VA, and connected with the Washington & Old Dominion at Vienna. It was abandoned in 1939. Here, the former right-of-way can be seen facing northeast from the end of Library Lane, near the corner of Maple Avenue (VA Route 123) and Nutley Street (VA Route 243) in Vienna, VA.

A topographical map from the 1920s shows the Fairfax-Vienna line as "Electric RR". (Submitted by Mike Palmer)
