FOREWORD
In attempting to sketch the development of the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad Company the writer has been impelled by the conviction that the many interesting events in its long life should be made available to those who share his pride in the Company and his admiration both for the men who have directed its destiny and for the thousands of employees who have so loyally contributed to its success since pioneer railroad days. For the RF&P is unique in many respects. It is the only American railroad which has existed and operated through more than a century under its original name and without reorganization. It is the last remaining Company in which the Commonwealth of Virginia still holds stock purchased as one of a large number of investments for the encouragement of early transportation enterprises. It occupies a highly strategic location and has fortunately escaped the evils that have come to so many American railroads through the building of unnecessary parallel lines. The Company is also unique in its extremely favorable relations with its connecting lines, in its remarkable earning capacity and in its enviable record for safety.
In selecting material from the Company's reports and records the aim has been to include not only major items standing as mile posts in the development of the Company or of railroading in general, but also some that may appear trivial but which nevertheless are believed to possess local interest. Details are mentioned in the earlier period, then regarded as important but which later became mere routine. Made up necessarily of many more-or-less disconnected items, this sketch will probably be found poor reading, but it is hoped that it will at least prove useful for reference purposes.
My grateful acknowledgments go to Lawrence T. Oliver for his able assistance in getting out this brochure.
