I can see a spur coming off the mainline to the right... does/did that lead to something, or did trains also used to skirt around the hill?

It may have gone to other industries in Welch or connecting to the branch line. I really don't know. Others I am sure will know the history better. Right now it just goes a little ways out of frame where it ends.

Having been raised in Appalachia, I know there are many beautiful and sunny days, but this photo really captures the gloomy side and the feeling of being closed in.

Thanks for the shot of this great piece of history. Glad it is headed to a Museum.
