This railroad runs through my dad's property. He lives on Tamarack rd near Fitzner rd in Lakeview. He bought the property in the 1950s and still lives on it in 2013. I used to walk down those tracks back in the 70s when I was a kid. Great memories.

I'm a history buff and inquiring information on the 12.46 miles of ex C&0 rail between Lakeview and Edmore abandoned in 1973. Was this trail/short line sold by C&O to adjacent land owners? If not then who purchased it? Who owns it now? I see that the local farmers bulldozed it over where it crossed their fields.....assuming they purchased sections of it? Just curious and never really heard how it all went down. Thanks for your time and any info you can provide would be awesome.
