Chesapeake and Albemarle Railroad ( reporting mark CA) is a short-line railroad that operates 68 miles (109 km) of track from [1 ] Chesapeake, Virginia to Edenton, North Carolina.
The railroad was originally part of the
Norfolk Southern Railroad, which continued south, crossing the Albemarle Sound and on to Mackeys Ferry and Plymouth. The current railroad began operations in 1990 and was acquired by RailAmerica in 2000. [1 ]
