A passenger coach of the C&O branch that ran from Garrison as far as Gesling. Most passengers disembarked at Carter City. My father, a ten year old who lived near the tracks on Smith Creek, described the train as being "as pretty a sight as you'd ever see" as it chugged it's way along, belching sparks and smoke. Along the route the train would stop to pick up milk cans that a farmer left out or an occasional passenger. It was a small train. Only four cars or coaches was the most that it could haul over a hazardous section of the road called Deep Cut. In the background is the Cartee General Store. Photo is circa 1925.
