Historical Note

The Cincinnati & Eastern Railroad, established in 1876, had been founded as the Cincinnati, Batavia and Williamsburg Railroad earlier that year. The line, completed in 1884, ran from a point north of Cincinnati eastward to Portsmouth, Ohio. The company went into foreclosure and was purchased in 1887 by the Ohio and North Western Railroad; through another foreclosure, it passed to the Cincinnati, Portsmouth and Virginia Railroad in 1891. The CP&V was in turn acquired by Norfolk and Western Railway Company in 1901. Today (2013) the line is owned by Norfolk Southern.
