I have a historical picture of a treasle in the same area of the Asa Ransom House on this same ROW that I am having trouble posting.
The caption indicates on the trestle is in the background of the old " Ebersol Mill" with a silo in the foreground. I do not believe this is part of the bridge over Ransom Road but need to take a ride over to try and find.
In regards to difficulty trying to post a picture - same issue I've run against before. I'm tryin to pick a picture out of my phone as a file attachment and I get an error message. I don't believe a size issue. Even when I tried to copy and paste the picture - a no go. However no problems when i try to copy to a regular email.
I have walked this area and ride my bike on the WS trail all the time. The spur into the mill still exists. You can walk the first 1/3rd of it but the remaining 2/3rd crosses private property of which I didn't walk on. The spur is between the park and Ransom Rd. You won't necessarily see it until you actually walk past it and then the row becomes visible. Very treed in. But I did drive around to the entrance off of Main St and it takes you right to the remains of the concrete "something." Silo storage/dumper?" Pretty cool to view but its a very tight area and I didn't remain there for more than a minute. Private property issues. Don't want to disturb the nest.
As for the trestle over Ransom Rd....I had always hoped that "they" would leave it in place. But they pulled it out and eventually replaced it with a pedestrian bridge. It's certain better than nothing at all.
As for posting pictures, here's what I use now. This RR site is annoying when trying to post pictures. Either its to big or the latest..."can't find it." So I just post the link.....
