Atlantic & Yadkin Railway

History &


CF Line
CR Line
SM Line
Track Chart Codes


Here, I document the A&Y track infrastructure based upon a 1912 Southern Railway track chart. The A&Y consisted of the mainline designated CF (stands for Cape Fear) in Southern's nomenclature and two branches. The Ramseur branch (or CR line) ran from Climax to Ramseur. The Madison branch (or SM line) ran from Stokesdale to Madison. Separate pages will document the mainline and each branch (click on the link in the menu to the left). If I later find documentation on the MA&E track, I will include it.
