NORTH CAROLINA. Shares of $50. brown, black. No 12. Folds. Vignette of a train. The line was supposed to connect Statesville to the Virginia border on a route 'as near an airline as the nature of the route will permit', or in other words, as straight and flat a line as possible. Works started in 1910 andended in 1917 as convicts working on the line, were reassigned to support the war effort. A lot of grading work had been completed, but not a single piece of track was laid. The work was however not completely wasted as some roads were laid along the roadbed originally graded for the railroad.
