Connellsville-Ohiopyle_055.jpg
Hiking Bridge137 viewsThe piers are remnants of the WM, but the bridge is recent addition. The original bridge was removed due to a low clearance issue over the state road. The geniuses at the hikey bikey trail decided the remaining original spans weren't "pretty" enough, so they spent a gazillion tax dollars to have it removed and replaced with this wispy little truss bridge.

Connellsville Station 2-15-08220 viewsA good look at where the track level was.

Right of Way looking East126 viewsI'm about halfway between the two Ohiopyle bridges, looking back toward the depot. The path that splits away to the left is the right of way of the former connection to the B&O, which is about a hundred yards away to the left.

High Bridge at Ohiopyle141 viewsAs with the whole Connellsville Sub, the infrastructure was in place to double track the line. In the early days the traffic never materialized to require that, and by the time volume had grown to that point, CTC was in place, making the single track more than adequate. This is also a good look at the plate girders, and the concrete piers.

The railings and deck have all been added as part of the rail-trail project.

Connellsville Station - 2008223 viewsThe WM shared this station with the Pittsburgh and West Virginia. The tracks were elevated and ran on a steel bridge and fill through the center of town. There was a catwalk from the tower to reach track level.

Connellsville bridge pier facade229 viewsThe front wall of this bar is actually a bridge pier. Note the steel bridge feet on top...

Cumberland Station Circa 1989169 viewsThis is how the Cumberland Station looked at the end of it's career for the Western Maryland. The CTC office for the Connellsville Sub was located on the second floor, the platform covers at the track side had been removed, as had the second platform.Aug 29, 2008

WM Station at Meyersdale135 viewsNow houses the local Historical Society. Nicely restored. Many of the details are similar to the station and office building in Union Bridge, which was constructed around the same time (1912).Feb 25, 2008

Highway Underpass135 viewsJust east of Salisbury Viaduct. This is a typical design for highway "culverts" along the WM's Connellsville line and Cumberland Extension. There's a similar structure at Little Orleans.Feb 25, 2008

Historic Marker223 viewsThis is what used to be here. Personally, I don't see what was wrong with it!Feb 22, 2008

The Hikey Bikey Bridge220 viewsGoing west, this was the first crossing of the Youghiougheny at Ohiopyle. The original steel girder plate bridge was removed and replaced with this. I suppose it's got it's good points, but I don't think it would hold up very well under a brace of SD-40's...Feb 22, 2008
