    Historical Context

    This company was incorporated under the general laws of Kentucky through filing articles of incorporation with the Secretary of State of Kentucky on August 5, 1905.

    The company owned and operated a passenger station at Lexington. The railroad property consisted of 0.222 mile of main track, 0.446 mile of yard tracks and siding, a station building of brick, cut stone, and terra cotta construction, and the Ayers Alley viaduct, the latter being built jointly by the carrier, the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway Company, and the city of Lexington.

    The company was later jointly controlled by the C & O and the Louisville & Nashville.
