I have a way to find them), this seems to be the proper route: http://www.openstreetmap.org/browse/way/195427742There are noticeable discrepancies between the map at alleghanyhistory.org and your openstreetmap, especially south and east of Route 350. One such discrepancy is that according to the hand-drawn map, B&S and L&P ROWs cross to the west of White Creek Road, while on your openstreetmap, these ROWs cross to the east of White Creek Rd (looks like about 1000ft to the east). A second discrepancy is the that B&S ROW is shown on the hand-drawn map to be a noticeable distance from Rt 19, while at openstreetmap, the B&S ROW appears to be adjacent to Rt 19 at least when Rt 19 heads almost due south. And of course, the 3rd discrepancy would be the "visible grade [east of 19]".
That still leaves the "visible grade [east of 19]" unexplained.
