Chesterfield Coal Railway (United States)


The Chesterfield Railroad was located in Chesterfield County, Virginia. It was a 13 mile (21 km) long mule-and-gravity powered line that connected the Midlothian coal mines with wharves that were located at the head of navigation on the James River just below the fall line at Manchester (on the south bank directly across from Richmond). It began operating in 1831 as Virginia's first common carrier railroad.
