B&O - Paint Creek bridge
Posted November 1, 2018, by ivan j. hook (capthook486 [at] gmail [dot] com)

I have walked across that bridge many times over the years and even hitched a ride on the old slow B&O from Shippenville station to the airport at the 322 junction. i also have waded that creek and swam at Briners mill many times.Thanks for the photos, it brought back many good memories.
