Have a friend that lives a bit further east on Mt. Pleasant Rd. and while I have noticed a line, I dismissed it as just part of natural glaicer /farmers 'work'. Thanks for the great pictures and explaination to go with it! And how do you determine whether something is a flood cut and not a natural depression? And the Pennssylvania RR--isn't that the Greenway Trail and where does it merge or crosses the R Nand P RR ? Thanks in advance if you can answer these questions!!
With the help of a local farmer, I was able to photograph an intact culvert under approx 30 ft of fill, created by the Rochester, Nunda and Pennsylvania RR, between Fowlerville and York. I also photographed another culvert, now collapsed, which is visible from Mt. Pleasant Road near York. All my photographs of culverts, fills, cuts and a few cows of the RN&P RR can be viewed at http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected] ... 482063104/ Also shown are four pages of property deeds relating to the RN&P RR.--
