Richmond & Danville

The road was chartered in 1847 and opened in 1856. It was essential throughout the war in providing the production of south-central Virginia to Richmond. When the Petersburg Railroad was cut in 1864, this road's connection with the Piedmont Railroad was the only remaining connection from  Richmond to the rest of the South.
