Photo above is from John Bonney, he believes he has the original timetable that hung on the Midland or Lonaconing station. The timetable is dated Nov 28th, 1881 showing the passenger train schedules between Lonaconing and Hays Street stopping at Midland Junction, Vale Summit, Percy Siding, George's Creek Junction and Mechanic Street. It shows the total length of the line (from New Detmold Mine to Basin Wharf - they also ran freight) as 22.55 miles. Thanks to John for sharing this item.

Looking east on the abandoned roadbed above Lonaconing on the east side of the valley. The rails were removed in 1967, only only crossties remained when the photo was taken. (1969, Don Biggs photo)

Looking east and west on a GC&C fill approaching a switchback on the east side of the valley above Lonaconing. It's 1969 and the rails and bridge over the road were removed in 1967. Today the fill its self is gone and house have been built at this location. The switch back was just to the left after the bridge, then the track contunied on to the right on the hillside. (1969, Don Biggs photos)

This photo is looking west from the switchback also on the east side of the valley. Notice the fill in the distance and the bridge removed over the road. (1969, Don Biggs photo)

East Side of Valley Mines

The remains of a mine tipple along the abandoned GC&C roadbed above Lonaconing, (1969, Don Biggs photo)

These photos are another mine on the east side of the valley above Lonaconing. This group of photos are all the same mine. First photo is the remains of the tipple from trackside then a neat photo looking out onto the tipple and out into the valley. Next two shots seem to be a small yard located between ther mine entrance and the tipple. Last tow photos are the remains of the scale house and the mine entrance itself. I will try and track down a map or list of mine names to figure which mine is which and try to post soon. (1969, Don Biggs photos)
