That's pretty ambitious. Are you talking HO, N, or some other scale? Any particular places which you are focusing on? Time period?

My knowledge of the area is not great, but if I see anything relevant, I'll pass it on.

I'm modeling that line, but just the Spencer to Clinchcross portion. I've found the "Business Tracks and Stations Not Shown in Station Columns" in the employee timetable to be very helpful.

Also, look at the county GIS web sites. The one for Catawba County is particularly helpful, with very easy access to deed history which sometimes tells you who used to own the property in question.

Jack:

I will be doing this in HO Scale. I have some of the Sanborn maps that I have been able to see online and my friend Jim King is also helping me out as well as Gordon from the Murphy Branch group.io.
