The recent enthusiasm for the Salem Branch inspired me to get off of my keister last Friday and take a walk west (geographically south) from Wesco, MP A107.5, to Lost Mountain, about MP A108.2. There was a derailment in April 1976 just east of MP A108 that has always piqued my interest, so I thought I would revisit the spot. When I was growing up and riding my motorcycle on the ROW, there was large chat contrasting with the mostly cinder ballast that marked the spot in the roadbed where the mishap occurred. My companion for this little trip is Katy, my four-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback. Our first place of interest is the bridge located at the west end of the siding. When the track and bridge were removed in 1985, Dad "salvaged" a couple of sticks of rail, laid them upside down on the abutments, and placed ties on the bottom of the rail bases so we would have a bridge for agriculture and recreational use. A gully washer in July 1998 washed the large stone abutments away, so he rebuilt it with the frame of a log trailer. The farm was purchased about 12 or 13 years ago and is now owned by Bill and Jeanie Bahr and operated as Wesco Weddings and Events. Bill added the covered portion and the little nearby water-wheel several years back. It's a popular site for wedding photos. A big thanks to Bill and Jeanie for being so generous and allowing locals like myself use of their property.
