Our Railroads

Winchester and Western Railroad Company (NJ Division)

The history of the Winchester & Western (W&W) began in the Summer of 1916.  The Baltimore & Ohio railroad and the Winchester Lumber Company decided that the forests of Hardy, Hampshire, and Frederick Counties of West Virginia could be harvested for their vital resources. In the years following, which included the First World War, rail traffic was on the rise leading to an increased need for more rail ties.

Thus, The Intermountain Construction Company began working on the Winchester & Western Railroad, with the first train taking track in January, 1918.  The initial train carried lumber from Gore to Winchester, VA.The New Jersey Division has four lines: the Mainline, Seashore Line, Deerfield Branch, and Bridgeton Port Branch. These four lines are all interconnected through WW, Conrail, CSXT, or NS tracks.

 In the mid-1980s, the railroad was then split into the Virginia Division and the New Jersey Division, which both have connections to CSX Transportation and Norfolk Southern Railway, two major Class I Railroads.

summaryThe Winchester & Western Railroad (WW) was born in the summer of 1916 when the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, along with its subsidiary, the Winchester Lumber Company, decided that the forests of Hardy, Hampshire, and Frederick counties of West Virginia could be harvested for their resources. The years that followed saw rail traffic on the rise as the U.S. entered World War I, leading to an increased need for railroad ties.
