PIEDMONT RAILROAD COMPANY—PREDECESSOR OF THE SOUTHERN

No accounting records of the Piedmont Railroad Company were obtained. Therefore, no information can be given from its accounts regarding its financial dealings, corporate operations, or investments. Certain information stated below was obtained from the company's reports to this commission, returns made by the Southern, and other sources.

The company was controlled first by the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company and later by the Southern, through ownership of a majority of the capital stock and all of the bonds. At date of demise of the Piedmont Railroad Company its property was operated by the Southern under a lease agreement which it had acquired from the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company.

The property owned on date of demise consisted of about 48.40 miles of single, main-track railroad, extending from Danville to Greensboro, N. C.

The military necessity for a railroad connection between the line of the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company and that of the North Carolina Railroad and the long-desired authority for the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company to extend its road into North Carolina, prompted the Confederate States and the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company in backing this project, in fact it was under pressure of the Confederate Government that the State of North Carolina granted the charter of the Piedmont Railroad Company.

Under its agreement with the Confederate States, dated May 8, 1862, the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company undertook to subscribe for practically all the stock of the Piedmont Railroad Company and to construct the road from Danville to Greensboro, in consideration of which the Confederate Government was to lend the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company $1,000,000 of Confederate bonds and supply the necessary iron, taking the mortgage bonds of the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company as collateral security. The Richmond and Danville Railroad Company thereupon undertook construction of the line, which was completed in 1864.

From developments incident to the fall of the Confederacy, it is shown that the Confederate bonds were returned by the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company and then that company assumed responsibility to the Roanoke Valley Railroad Company and other Virginia railroad companies for the value of the iron and rolling stock which had been confiscated by the Confederate Government for use in constructing the road of the Piedmont Railroad Company.

The property was operated in aid of the Confederacy until the end of the Civil War. On June 24, 1865, an agent of the United States Government seized the property on the theory that it had been the property of the Confederate States and it was operated from that date by an agent of the United States Treasury Department until December 9, 1865, at which time it was returned to its owner.

During the period from December 9, 1865, and February 15, 1866, the gauge of the company's road was changed to conform to that of the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company, and on February 15, 1866, the property was leased to the Richmond and Danville Railroad Company for sole operation. The latter company and its receivers operated the property under this lease agreement, which was renewed on February 20, 1867, and again on February 20, 1872, until July 1, 1894. On July 1, 1894, the Southern acquired the lease and operated the property until September 18, 1894, the date of demise.

The outstanding capital obligations of the Piedmont Railroad Company on June 30, 1894, as stated in its report to this commission, aggregated $2,500,000 par value, as follows:
