Hubby was surfing the internet and discovered some old train trestles still existed near where he grew up and went to school so we had to go explore. We found two of them. This one was marked private property so I took these from the road. The 34.4 mile railroad branch was built to haul the products of several coal mines, logging operations, and oil wells and carry passengers between several tiny communities. There were virtually no roads. Trains averaged 15 miles an hour, crossed 52 bridges, and negotiated 120 curves from one end to the other. In 1925 a car was provided to take children to and from school. That train car ran up until some time in the 50's. While stopping and taking photos we met an older gentleman who had actually rode the school train for almost four years. He had even known some of my husband's family and pointed us in the direction of an abandoned train tunnel we also explored that day.
