This page shows images of railway scenes in the state of Virginia.

The two class-1 railroad companies operating in the state are Chessie System Transportation (CSXT)and Norfolk Southern (NS).



Located north of Lynchburg City is an area that has remains of an old steel mill and an active hydro electric plant. Today, the old steel mill grounds are well occupied by a railcar repair company.

The area is accessible by a narrow public road which runs alongside the railway line and terminates at the hydro electric plant. The area surrounding the hydro plant is well visited by folks fishing the James river. The sign at the grade crossing leading to the hydro plant is named "HYDRO".
