Wingate to Snow Shoe

The Snow Shoe 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!

It appears that R.J. Corman Railroad Company has purchase half of the line and reopen it, shortening the Snow Show Rail trail to have its length.
