Biographical or historical data
The company was chartered by an act of the General Assembly in 1857. On April 18, 1867 the Norfolk and Petersburg Railroad, South Side Rail Road, Virginia and Kentucky Railroad, and the Virginia and Tennessee Railroad merged together to form the Atlantic, Mississippi and Ohio Railroad. The Virginia and Kentucky Railroad Company never opened before this merger took place. In 1881 the A M & O was reorganized as the Norfolk and Western Railroad Company.
