Richmond & Petersburg

The road was completed in 1838. The road was severely overworked in connecting the two main Virginia cities and supplying the coal from the Clover Hill mines. The Clover Hill Branch was built by the Clover Hill Coal Mining Company in 1845 and was operated by the Richmond & Petersburg Railroad.

In February, 1865, an officer reports his duty station as "the Extension of the Richmond & Petersburg RR."
