Cherry Valley Branch - post - August 17, 1956

Post by brward »

Put on your thinking caps and please, no guess work. After the final freight run on August 17, 1956, the line was officially abandoned. The questions - 1.) When was it scrapped? 2.) What company did it? 3.) Was there a locomotive used in scrap operations? Thank you. - Brian
