Western Maryland Rail Trail

A railroad siding was constructed near here to allow the train's coal cars to unload their cargo at the coal trestle. From the trestle the coal cars would dump the coal to load the trucks that were waiting down below. The trucks would then deliver the coal locally.

The beginning of the siding can be seen in the center of the picture. The coal trestle can be seen to the right and center of the picture.
