The railroad of the Kelly's Creek and Northwestern Railroad Company, hereinafter called the carrier, is a single-track standard-gauge steam railroad, located in West Virginia. The main line extends from Cedar Grove to the Lewis mines, about 2 miles east of Ward, W. Va., a distance of 6.792 miles. The carrier also owns 1.383 miles of yard tracks and sidings. Its road thus embraces 8.175 miles of all tracks owned. The entire right of way of this railroad is leased from the Kellys Creek Colliery Company. The carrier is an industrial railroad, serving principally the coal mines of the Kellys Creek Colliery Company, which controls the railroad.

The carrier was incorporated May 9, 1903, under the general laws of the State of West Virginia for the purpose of constructing and operating a railroad from Cedar Grove to Sutton, W. Va. The date of organization of the carrier has not been ascertainable from the records reviewed.
