Finding The Tracks Of The Dinky Railroad

                                                                                                                              

This is the story of a narrow gauge railroad that ran from Mount Airy, North Carolina, to Kibler Valley in Patrick County, Virginia officially known as the Mount Airy and Eastern Railroad and affectionately known as "The Dinky." This webpage will be one of many on The Free State of Patrick that will cross the state line between North Carolina and Virginia being a truly regional webpage about history in this area.
