Birthing cry for an Adair Railroad just got weaker and weaker


Re: Adair County railroads:
Adair Co., KY: Prof. Azbill and the Electric Interurban Railway, 1901-1906

The Nefarious Mr. Burns and His Fivescore Vapor-Mule
Beyond the attempts mentioned in the articles linked above, sporadic efforts to establish a rail line in Adair County continued through at least the early 1920s. In each instance, however, the birthing cry became weaker and death rattle sounded quicker, nearly to the point of the latter becoming an echo of the former. - Jim
