locked Re: Gordonsville, Virginia

The correct answer is that the Orange-Gordonsville line was leased for 99 years to the C&O by the Richmond & Danville in December 1890. At the same time, C&O obtained trackage rights from Orange to Alexandria, Va. The Southern Railway, having been formed in 1894, did not operate the line between Orange and Gordonsville. Hope this answers your question.

The Orange and Alexandria came to the area before the Civil War.  SRHA has no employee information.

Two questions, did the SR run through Gordonsville, VA in the early 1900s e.g 1915-1920? Also does the society have any employee lists from that period? Thanks!
