    From Richard Crabtree on the Frisco Rails Across Missouri Facebook group:
    Here is a little town most never heard of Moselle, Missouri. Moselle had its start in 1849 when a blast furnace was built at the site. The community most likely was named after Moselle, France. A post office called Moselle was established in 1860, and remained in operation until 1971

    I grew up in Moselle maybe 20 feet from the tracks. We lost a lot of dogs to the trains and also a cow and a pony. To this day can still sleep through the long whistles from overnight trains. The depot was just a foundation when I lived there, nice to see the photos of it.

    Going west, this is where you started getting your run at Iron Hill.
