 White Oak Railway 



The White Oak Railway was originally incorporated in 1905 to build a railroad running from Mount Carbon to Glen Jean. But this route was never constructed. Instead, a short siding was built from Macdonald to Price Hill and a line built from Carlisle to Stuart. The White Oak Ry. later became part of the Chesapeake & Ohio Railway and by agreement was jointly operated with the Virginian Railway.
