Working on the rail road

Posted: Monday, Jun 24th, 2013

GRAFTON – beyond the great Tygart Dam, Memorial Day or Mother’s Day, no other outside force mightier than the B&O Railroad helped to forge Grafton’s history. Thomas Dixon, Jr., owner of TLC Publishing recently honored local historian and research specialist Dave Shingleton by offering him the opportunity of a lifetime.

Shingleton was invited by Dixon to write a book on the history of the B&O Rail Road in Grafton, to which Dixon will publish.

Shingleton informed the Mountain Statesman that he has already established a tremendous archive of material.
