*1906 acquired by Southern Railway.

Organized by A.B. Andrews and associates, this line was chartered to operate solely within Buncombe County, North Carolina. According to the Articles of Association filed with the State of North Carolina, the line was "to make a connection with the Southern Railroad (sic) at or near Asheville and extending northward down the French Broad River Valley on the east side of the same valley." A second connection was to be made with Southern Railway across the French Broad River on its west side, above the mouth of Beaver Dam Creek. The line was a total of five (5) miles long.

This railroad was operated by the Asheville & Craggy Mountain Railroad until both were acquired by Southern Railway in 1906.
