Cumberland Narrows Mountain Scene in 1970


There is so much track in bridges in this scene it looks like something a model railroader would build.

Eckhart Junction in the Cumberland Narrows, 1970. The masonry arch bridge over Wills Creek was built by the Maryland Mining Company in 1860 as part of the Eckhart Branch Railroad. Beyond the masonry bridge is a viaduct for the State Line Branch
Dennis DeBruler I assume this is now the CSX/B&O on the left and the Great Allegheny Passage Trail/Western Maryland on the right. We are facing generally East. The WM truss bridge still exists:
