Originally called the Virginia-Carolina Railway, Norfolk & Western absorbed the line in 1919 and ran its last train on March 31, 1977.
Many visitors ask how the trail got its name. Well, back in the day, the locals referred to the train that climbed eastward into the Iron Mountains as the "Virginia Creeper", a name taken from the native plant that grows along the route. A steam engine laboring up mountain grades with heavy loads of lumber, iron ore, supplies, and passengers was also a "virginia creeper" in every sense of the word.
