RDG's Rausch Creek station

Post by GP30 5513 »

Now that the vegetation is down, I walked back where the station would've stood. The block foundation is easy to see from Rausch Creek Road... or so I thought.

I walked around the immediate area find three railroad ties, two wooden pole bases that look similar to telegraph/water tower support poles, and another concrete block foundation on a higher part of land, less than 30ft from the first foundation. Where there separate passenger & freight stations located here? Possibly a facility of some sort? The ROW is completely obliterated in this area (former P&R Mount Eagle Branch), so there's nothing to go by. I will try walking the ROW starting in Tremont later this year to see how far it's traversible.
