Built in the 1870s, this Wheeling & Lake Erie spur was once the only reliable way to get into or out of Chagrin Falls. The spur began in Glenwillow, at a point called Falls Junction on maps and timetables, and proceeded northward to Solon, about 1 mile. From there the line headed northeast to Chagrin Falls. The total length of the spur was about 7 miles.
The portion from downtown Solon to Chagrin Falls was abandoned around 1980 but had probably been out of use for some years before that. US 422 has a bridge over the right of way. The short segment between Falls Junction and Solon is still in use today to serve industrial plants in Solon.
