  1. I’m gonna have to look for that trestle on Google Earth. Saw the piers for the Broad River crossing on Google Earth, but didn’t see anything from it of the SW CC. Fascinating story.

  2. Looked at the Google Maps view of the Blacksburg area. Rather interesting railroad layout. Saw where that trestle was … wonder why that line was built out there. Iron mining? The due north line ran to Shelby and is apparently still open. Saw where the due south line went under the E/W RR, but did not see where the Swamp Rabbit pulled off. Interesting history on that area. Didn’t know about the iron mining boom.
