Western Maryland
Hutchinson, West Virginia
August 21, 1972

Just south of Hutchinson, West Virginia, U.S. Route 19 passed under this Western Maryland trestle, now long gone. At one time the WM connected with the Baltimore & Ohio's line via Shinnston at Hutchinson, with shared track from Hutchinson to Gaston Junction on the B&O. In the other direction the WM serviced mines at Stringer and Josephine.
