(OK, so I've lapsed here and there. Whoop-de-do.)
While I was born in the South, my family hails from West Virginia. Because of that, I have mountains, coal, railroads and lumber in my makeup. (Yes, it does occasionally cause me to walk a bit funny, but that isn't the point.)
Looking for something else entirely, I tripped over this site, the Mountain State Railroad & Logging Historical Association. If you're from Almost Heaven, have ever visited, want to visit and are looking for things to do, like trains or are just curious, this is a good place to spend some time.
