I found this awesome article written by Jacob Stotler about the Salem Branch and all its spur lines! There is also an amazing map with tons of photos and old newspaper articles about events, crashes and the building of the lines. Be sure to click on all the markers and not just the "camera" ones. Also click on the routes as well as they info and photos too. It's Gold Mine of info with pictures that I have never seen before, and a time killer for sure! Salem, the City of Railroads?
