Ernstville is a small town just 1 mile west of Big Pool that the WM passed through. Not much was or is here now. Just west of Ernstville near the B106.5 was the W.E. or "West End" of the double track that ran west from Hagerstown 17 miles to the east. Also here at this location siganls 106.4 and 106.5 once controlled train into the single track mainline. The WM right-of-way was used after abandoment up to the construction of the WMRT by the local school bus. It was easier for the bus to use the level straight route than traverse the twisting local road.
