The first comprehensive story of the longest narrow gauge railroad east of the Mississippi. The Ohio River and Western Railroad, an 1880s extension of the three foot gauge railroad mania of the 1870 and 1880s, connected Bellaire and Zanesville ,Ohio with some of the most grossly underengineered and financed railroad ever created, and it, and its employees continued to make it work until 1931. The Pennsylvania Railroad folded it into its giant system in the WWI era, but like the Waynesburg and Washington, the OR&W just couldn't be made to fit and to pay off, and the car and hard surfaced roads finished it off in 1931. 1997 Timber Times. 248 pages.
