CSX - Trent River Bridge
Posted May 12, 2017, by Brian J. Patterson (pattersonbj [at] earthlink [dot] net)

This line was completely removed and ROW "taken over" by neighboring land owners circa 1985-1986. It barely made it into CSX's "books" if indeed it made it at all. It was Seaboard System when it was removed.
