The Elk River Railroad (reporting mark ELKR) runs for 61 miles (98 km) between Gilmer and Gassaway, West Virginia and has existed since July 1989 although it was originally built in the late 1800s and was once part of the Coal and Coke Railway that ran from Charleston to Elkins, and later the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Operations ceased indefinitely in 1999, though the railroad still exists, and receives revenue from car storage. Most of the mainline is in a state of neglect.
