Brancville, SC : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread

Seeking help on locating plats, map, drawings, profiles, etc. of the trackage in Branchville from 1885-1925. Do any of these exist? Are these items in the VA Tech archives? Particularly interested in the narrow gauge Branchville and Bowman RR (1891-1926) and Smoak's Tramway (1884-1891). Thanks Joe Bartolini West Columbia, SC

I recently visited the VT archives, not researching the B&B, but the WNCRR, R&D, and Piedmont RR. There are only corporate minutes and stockholders minutes that I saw. Very good stuff, but no maps or drawings or anything like that. The B&B is an intriguing line! Good luck,
