Overview


In 1865, as the Civil War was drawing to a close, plans were underway in Boston for a railroad construction project to begin in Greenup County, Kentucky. Eventually the Eastern Kentucky Railway Company would extend its main track through two more counties, Carter and Lawrence. Spanning just 36 miles of main track from Riverton to Webbville, the Eastern Kentucky Railway became a lifeline for the economic and social activities of the people of northeastern Kentucky. Even though the original plan of extending the railway much farther south and bridging the Ohio River to the north never came about, the railway struggled along for more than 65 years. Many people who grew up along the line passed their experiences to younger generations; some, like Jesse Stuart, wrote about them. This volume will show life along the rail line that lent its name to the highways now running its route.

    A great railroad picture and history book

    I purchased this book a month ago. I thought, I never heard of this railroad. I must admit, I'm not a paperback book type of person, but we love this book. I've purchased several copies as gifts for older ones in my family!

    A perfect gift!

    I bought the book. I honestly enjoy looking at it. I'm going to purchase more for gifts. I can't believe that ran through Greenup County. Bobby

    Thanks.

    I was born in Carter County and now live in Greenup County. The Eastern Kentucky railroad, though gone long before I was born, was an important part of the history of the region and had a major impact on the lives of my grandparents and their generation. This book is a wonderful compilation of pictures and historical facts that details life as it was for my ancestors. I am very appreciative that the author and publishers have done such a great service to the people of this area.

    I just received a copy of this book! If you are a lover of old unknown railroads, this is a great book! Perfect for all ages! Unlike several other Arcadia books, it actually gives a historical account of the railroad that ran through the Eastern Part of Kentucky.

    A fun and knowledgable reading!

    I found this early reading to be to my liking very much. There was something quite different about this book than your usual run of the mill series of rail books. I actually would purchase this for friends and family!

    I like the cover.

    You can't judge a book by it's cover, but just seeing this causes me to anticipate the release even more. Charles Brock
