Grafton to Berryburg Junction

The Grafton and Belington Branch

Point of Interest

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

Philippi to Moatsville is now a state road (gravel). Still one bridge left in place as part of the road. The stone bridge abutments at the intersection of Arden Grade Road (The old RR grade) and Clemtown road at the new Moatsville bridge are still standing and easy to see.
