Did you find anything in Hookertoon? Was a wye there? Farmville was an EC Rwy goldmine for years. Easy to spot the relics. Same in Tarboro, Pinetops, etc. But Hookerton was a tough hunt.
Actually, we never found anything over at Hookerton.
Remember, this has been almost 30 years ago and I haven't thought about this much since then, as I left Greenville in 1989.
As best as I remember, we found evidence of some right of way along NC 123, just south of Maury. And then we lost it.
Too bad we didn't have Google Earth in those days. Jim and I weren't read adventurous to tramp across country. Wish we had.
Bridgers wrote a book "East Carolina Railway, Route of the Yellow Hammer" that I'd like to get, but I am not interested in paying over $180 for it. There was a copy in the downtown library, or at least there was in the mid 1980s.
Apparently some good research material on his book at the ECU library, as well.
