3B - Mountain Messenger- November 26, 2011 - The Weekend Paper For The Greenbrier Valley Booktalk. New book about Nicholas, Fayette and Greenbrier Railroad available at Greenbrier Historical Society A new book titled A Brief History of the Nicholas Fayette =and Greenbrier Railroad by C. R. McQuain is now part of the research material available at The Greenbrier Historical Society, Lewisburg. Retired railroader, C. R. McQuain, Jr., has captured the history of a local railroad from his memory as a long- time employee of that railroad and from information gathered by him from documents, letters, pictures etc. The book contains narrative, photos, diagrams, charts and graphs that make it of interest to railroad enthusiast and to those interested in Greenbrier County history. McQuain goes into great detail explaining such things as the technology of laying railroad tracks so the heavy seam engines pulling fiat cars could reach the lucrative timber stands high upon the steep hills and then safely navigate the same grades back down loaded with many tons of harvested timber. The book is available for research in the Historical Society's Archives located in the North House every day except Sundays and holidays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. To inquire further call 304-645- 3398.
