Youngs Gap - O&W Railroad

Looking atYoung's Gap and west towards Parksville from Liberty Hill. This was the site of many snow drifts and the hill that took two engines to push most trains up.

This picture labeled DeBruce has always been a mystery to me but no longer when compared to the Young's Gap picture. The railroad tracks are not visible and must have been "colorized" out

Same view in about 1960 when the Liberty Bypass (route 17) was built but the O&W tracks were not taken up yet.
