Evidence of an expert and large scale operation. Remarkable Blacksmith and Carpenter Barge with tools & supplies, Elevated Iron Rail Bridge, Raw Timber Rail w/ Short Line Supply Train Cars, Tunnel Entrance and Bridge Expanse with Steam visible in the distance. May be part of a developing railroad, matching mounts and dates ranging from 1906/7 are the only real clues.

Barlett Forman Carpenter, Length 1360 ft high, center 101 high, 4 men killed Travler (X?) and July 1896.
