"The second in the series on the B&O in West Virginia: Here's the story of the line between Fairmont and Clarksburg (with its beginnings as the Monongahela River RR) and the Short Line Subdivision between Clarksburg and Brooklyn Junction.
"The history of these lines is detailed, with information from microfilm records of construction - and early wrecks. Interviews with dozens of railroaders who ran these lines bring the early years of WV and its seminal influences - the railroads and the men who battled the terrain to build the state. The many maps tdake the reader back to the mountains of the 1920s."
