Rebuilding the WM track to Durbin

Postby dgvrengineer » Sun Feb 26, 2012 6:22 pm

If you missed riding the Western Maryland from Elkins to Durbin, WV you may get another chance. There is a bill before the WV
legislature to re-install the track that was removed in the mid 1990's from Elk River Jct to Durbin. Also in this proposal is to rebuild
the track between Durbin and Cass. This will allow trains to run from Elkins to Cass where passengers can switch to Cass railroad and ride to Spruce where they can board another D & GV RR train back to Elkins. Hopefully this project will happen and give us a chance to re-live the past.

Last I heard, as with any potential government project, it is tied up in studies and search for money.
