- Records represent the day to day business operation of the Chesapeake Western Railway Company through 1982. After a fire that year, records were left in the CW building on Chesapeake Drive in Harrisonburg, Virginia, and remained in that facility until 1997. In April 1997 JMU requested and received permission from the Superintendent, Va. Div. of Norfolk Southern in Roanoke to salvage records damaged in the fire. After cleaning and inventory by students, the materials were deposited in Carrier Library in Feb. 1998.
