Windsor in Bertie County, North Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Wellington and Powell Railroad
The W&P ran between Windsor and Ahoskie in the early to mid 1900ís carrying produce and passengers.
There was a hill on the trainís route it often had trouble climbing. Passengers sometimes had to literally jump out and help push cars to the top. That led to people jokingly refer to the W&P as the “Walk and Push.”
