A little history first
The railroad bed eastbound from Savage Arms on Bleecker St. is used by snowmobiles
Formerly a base for a signal
Bridge over Ferguson Creek and Rt 5-S (early 1900's)
Southside Rd. bridge (circa 1906)
Eastbound along Southside Rd.
Foundation and roof piece from a shanty
Bridge over W. River Rd. (circa 1906)
More bases of signal posts
This was not an ordinary oil drum; because of its construction, I am concluding that it was discarded by a RR work crew during the removal of the tracks.
Because of this location, I am assuming this sign indicated an upcoming switch
At this point (looking west), there was a siding that led to an as-yet-unknown business. Currently, there is a metal recycling yard at the end of the siding roadbed.
