Revised and expanded edition.

The founders of the A&D had a dream that the railroad would someday be a link in a chain of railroads that would pass through Danville, Virginia and compete with the northern U.S. railroads for traffic originating in the Mid-West. That wasn't to be but the A&D provided access for the Southern Railway to the deepwater ports of Virginia. The SRR leased the A&D but relegated the line to branch line status in preference to trackage rights over the Atlantic Coast Line. Later the Norfolk & Western Railway purchased the A&D as a source of traffic.
