Continued from Rocky Point Tunnel.

Crossing Ostrander Creek.

From Ostrander Creek on to Headquarters, the route is entirely uphill.

Horses along the line.

In some areas, the railroad passes right by some small farms and homes; in other areas, it seems isolated deep in the woods.

There is a short tunnel on the line. I have better pictures of it from the return trip.

The following pictures were taken by my dad between the tunnel and Landfill. They speak for themselves.
