I understand where the Aughwick stone bridge is, but where is the western end of the ownership now? Wood Township? Do they own the track through both tunnels? I hope they do eventually rebuild more of the line for tourist service. Especially the opposite way from Rockhill/Orbisonia toward Saltillo. The line is in sad shape on the out of service since 1956 portions. Rails are in, but rotting ties, trees growing in the tracks, crossings paved over, bridges in poor condition, etc. Are the tunnels caved in? If they can get as far as Robertsdale wye and rebuild the wye, then they will have a good chunk of the mainline for tourist trains. How many miles is it from Orbisonia station to Robertsdale wye?
