Bristol and Northwestern railway. What happened to it?

Postby scratchy » Tue Jun 28, 2016 2:29 pm

As a kid, I road on this line in the early 80s. I remembered they had Chicago Burlington & Quincy 4960 , a 2-8-2. There was talk of numerous coal mines up in the mountains. And then, it went away. I've not seen much online about it. And the line is now a walking trail. Anyone have any more information on it?
