Where were the limestone quarries in the Shenandoah Valley? And what time frame. There's lots of limestone there, but I can't think of any large quarrying operations served by the B&O or its connections.

Kind regards,

Yes. B&O moved a large amount of limestone and dolomite to the Ohio Valley from eastern West Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Blast Furnace and Open Hearth flux moved in open hoppers. Lime and processed dolomite moved in covered hoppers and containers.
