1986 abandonment track plans for the section of track between McCue (siding retired in 1961) and bridge #15.
Sheet No. 6 of abandonment set. Milepost 21 to 24.75.
Blow-up of McCue ROW
These plans also show areas where the railroad changed the alignment of the line. Below shows a line change in 1948 at the base of Slack Canyon at milepost 23. The result of this change was the elimination of bridges #12 and #13.
Below is a current aerial photo with a 1908 ROW drawing superimposed on top showing the alignment change and where bridge 12 and 13 used to be prior to 1948.
