I am collecting rolling stock for my model RR from small, and mostly fallen, road names from the southeast. I came across the ATW.

The Atlantic and Western Railway (reporting mark ATW) is a Class III short-line railroad operating about 10 miles (16 km) of track in Lee County, North Carolina.


These days all we hear about are the big four. I had no idea there were so many shortlines left in the US.


About 700 railroads operate common carrier freight service in the United States.

The current issue of Trains magazine is their annual shortline issue. One of the featured lines is the Alexander Railroad in NC. It only got 2 pages, but then it's a VERY short line at only 18 miles.
