March 27, 1904 From the Ti|nes-Dispatdl, Richmond, Va. AN ELECTRIC LINE FOR RUSSELL COUNTY (Special to The Times-Dispatch) BRISTOl.,, VA., March 26 -- The people of Russell cotlnty, Va.. arc ,,ow very much awake to the p|'oject to build an elcctric car line through that county fronl Cleveland, Va., on the Clirlch Valley division of the Norfolk and Western Railway. to l,cbanon, and thence through Washington county to Bristol. "Hie fasibility o1" the plan i:; nlade more nlanifest by the tact that there is ample water supply along the route to generate the necessary power. Since the pro- posed line would penetrate a rich section, which is greatly in need of railway lhcilities and which, it is believed, would yield business enough to make the investment a paying one, the prospect for the success of the project seems bright. The plan is to provide for the transportation of freight, as well as passengers, and for this purpose freight cars would be provided. September 4, 1908 -- WANTED ....
