The Winchester and Western Railroad is a shortline railroad operating from Gore through Winchester, Virginia and West Virginia to Hagerstown, Maryland. It also operates several lines in southern New Jersey, connecting to Conrail Shared Assets Operations at Millville and Vineland. The company's original line opened in 1917, extending west from Winchester to Rock Enon Springs, and while the 'Winchester and Western Railroad' operating company went through several reorganizations, it remained independent of larger carriers. In 1986, it grew suddenly adding newly acquired trackage when Conrail sold off parts of the former Pennsylvania Railroad, allowing the W&W to acquire the line from Winchester to Hagerstown, as well as the greater part of the W&W's New Jersey trackage—formerly parts of the Pennsylvania RR and Central Railroad of New Jersey (CNJ).
