Railroads have been a part of Ohio history since the first railroad was completed in 1836. Coal is one of the
most valuable minerals produced in Ohio with coal production mostly concentrated in the southeastern
part of Ohio. With 19 counties in southeastern Ohio there is a lot of railroad history around us. The Local
Places of Interest Pages is here to help you find railroad locations both active and abandoned that you can
visit. We plan to give you directions, photos, and history of these places. Please come back often to see new
places added or contact us and submitted some of your finds that can included bridges, Tunnels, Depots,
or whatever else you find that is railroad related both new and old.
Happy Railroad Hunting and always remember to be safe.
