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
