* 1900 - Leased by Southern Railway.
+ 1899 - Incorporated by an Act of the North Carolina Legislature, ratified on February 22, 1899.
Conceived as a line which would extend to Columbia, South Carolina, the company only managed to build a four-and-a-half-mile line from Virgilina, Virginia to the Holloway Mines. Southern Railway gained ownership of the line when it leased the Atlantic and Danville and operated the route as a branch line until its abandonment in 1940..
In 1910, a similar line was chartered as the North & South Carolina Railway. These two get confused by many folks, but they were not the same.
