CSX/L&N Gum Lick or West Fork Pond River Trestle

(Bridge Hunter; Satellite)

This is interesting how such a little creek created such a sharp valley.

CSX Q028-10 Atlanta, GA - Chicago, IL
CSXT 5412 leads hot intermodal north Q028-10 across the Gum Lick Trestle between Kelly and Crofton, Kentucky as the last rays of the fall sunset rakes through the valley on the Henderson Subdivision on November 10th, 2020.

Jim's "Gum Lick" name comes from the fact that the valley is named Gumlick Hollow.

USGS Map, search for Crofton, KY and then follow the railroad south

Southbound Intermodal at Gum Lick Trestle
CSX Q029 heads south, across Gum Lick, the highest trestle on the Henderson Subdivision, in the frigid cold, on February 19th, 2021 as the morning light rakes across the landscape sending shadows across the forest floor.
The "Gum Lick" name comes from the fact that the valley here is named Gum Lick Hollow and it sits between Crofton and Kelly Kentucky where it crosses over the West Fork of Pond River.
It's located between J. Knight road crossing and the Cavanaugh Lane overpass.

CSX hot intermodal rolls south across Gum Lick Trestle
This picture really shows the difference a day or so can make! Two days before there was about 4-6 inches of snow at this location and the temperature was 17 degrees and on this day if was 65 degrees!!! Makes for very different photos, but both situations make for great photo possibilities!
Here we have hot intermodal CSX Q029-23 with CSXT 928 leading on February 23rd, 2021 as it makes its way across the Gum Lick Trestle between Crofton and Kelly, Kentucky on the Henderson Subdivision on a beautiful winter (kinda) day.
