Harrison/C46.3
Harrison/C46.3







Harrison was the west end of two main tracks that ran west from Blaine. Here at Harrison was also a 75 car capacity sidetrack. "Wolf Den Mine" was just west of Harrison on the WM at the C47.1. At the mine was a 35 car capacity sidetrack.
A branch line to Elk Garden, WV also left the mainline here and climbed the hollows up the grade to the top at Elk Garden. I'll try to find some info on this branch.
