The Blue Lick Branch ran 3.7 miles to the Ponfeigh Mine. It left the mainline at the B199 milepost. Up the branch at the B199.2 was a 70 car capacity sidetrack that was used by the mine. Further up at the Ponfeigh Mine/B202.7 was another 70 car capacity sidetrack.
Today the Salisbury Viaduct is part off the Allegheny Highlands Trail. The bridge was renovated by removing the crossties, pouring a concrete deck, and installing new railings. The bridge is very nicely done and should be visited by anyone interested in the WM or trains themselves.
