The Virginian Railway Co. owns and operates 470 miles of railroad from Deepwatcr, W. Va.,
through the Pocahontas and New River coal districts to Norfolk, Va. The construction and
equipment is of the highest modern type. Although this is a new road, only three years in
operation, the Company's net earnings have equalled or exceeded its present interest charges
every year except the fust, and are steadily increasing. From a letter of Mr. U. H. Broughton,
President of the Company, and the independent reports of Mr. L. !?". Lorec, the President of
the Delaware & Hudson Co., Mr. I. C. W hite, State Geologist of West Virginia, and Mr. \Y. H.
Coverdalc, Consulting Engineer, copies of which will be sent upon request, we summarize as
First Mortgage on entire present properties, including terminals and equipment
(except for $2,437,000 equipment notes, due serially, 1912-1918, on a part of the
equipment). Will also cover all after-acquired property.
Actual cash cost of these properties more than $50,000,000, or about twice the total
funded debt ($27,437,000).
These bonds are outstanding at the low rate of about $32,000 per mile, after deduct?
ing net cost of tidewater terminals and equipment under the mortgage.
Net Earnings, Twelve Months to February 29, 1912 $1,679,610
Fiscal year to June 30, 1912 (4 months estimated) 1,800,000
Fiscal year to June 30, 1913 (estimated) 2,600,000
Present Interest Charges (including interest on these bonds), $1,371,850
Rapidly Growing Business. Coal Gross
Year ending June 30, 1910 930,000 $2,063,190
Year ending June 30, 1911 2,141,000 3,671,224
Present annual rate 3,400,000 4,850,000
Estimate for 1913 5,000,000
Estimate for 1914 6,000,000
Coal tonnage tributary to the road, as now constructed, is estimated at four billion
(4,000,000,000) tons. The Pocahontas and New River veins contain the best bitu?
minous coal produced in the United States. The Virginian Railway, by reason of
its low grades and superior equipment, can successfully compete with any rates
to tidewater, and will therefore continue to obtain a large percentage of the in?
evitably great development of this tonnage. This road also traverses large agri?
cultural and timber districts.
The Company has no floating debt. There is available for additional equipment
and improvements $1,500,000 cash, covering all requirements for 1912.
