Coal Trestle

Coal Trestle
The remains of the railroad trestle where coal was dumped in the yard next to the powerhouse. There were at least 5 distinct positions on the trestle for the unloading of hopper cars. In the day, when these boilers were actively consuming coal, this must have been a very busy place, with hopper cars coming and going presumably every day or so. The width of the embankment here suggests there was more than one track here at the end of the spur, with one track on the trestle and one to the right, allowing storage of extra cars.
