08/31/2002 West Virginia & Maryland Road Trip

While driving home from a recent hikiing trip I took advantage of discovering several backwoods WV & MD towns and spots along the way.

I have recently heard that the little 0-4-0T in Davis, WV has been moved/scrapped(?) - Can someone please let me know if this is true? cpl_clegg@yahoo.com
