Cuts and fills of the Independent Line of the Manassas Gap Railroad are visible along this line and at various places through Fairfax County to Sudley Ford on Bull Run. Running north of the Little River Turnpike from Annandale and along North Street the line crossed to south of the Turnpike at West Street then followed the southern border of the former Mount Vineyard Plantation. Conceived to extend the Manassas Gap Railroad to Alexandria, grading for this portion began in 1854 but work stopped in 1857 without track being laid. In various places the roadbed provided shelter from attack and a route for troop movements during the Civil War.
