This was once the hub of Boones Creek
when the Clinchfield Railroad was built in 1907. Farm items and government products were distributed and shipped from this site.
The tour is complete from Erwin all the way to Shelbiana, Kentucky, and is accessible here. Much, indeed probably most, of the countryside through which the railroad flows is relentlessly hilly, and north of the Blue Ridge, it's mountainous. If you have not previously followed a Frograil tour, you are strongly advised to read thoroughly the Frograil Tour Guide. It will save you time, energy, and grief -- errors like forgetting to bring a compass, GPS, or not studying things ahead of time, for example, can be avoided. If you fail to plan ahead, I can guarantee you that you'll wish you had by the time your tour is finished.
