Abandoned Trestle of the Cabin John Trolley over Foundry Branch: The Washington and Great Falls Electric Railway was approved on July 28, 1892 to build an electric streetcar line from the Aqueduct Bridge to Cabin John Creek. It completed its track in August 1895. Because the railroad never reached Great Falls, but instead terminated at Cabin John, it was often referred to as the "Cabin John Trolley".
Great shot. Like. Hope you decide to join our group Religous Buildings of USA. Best wishes, Dave. My Gallery

I worked at this gas station as a high school senior in 1975. It was a Texaco and regular gas was .28 a gallon.
Great mural. Thnks for bringing it. Fascinating style.

Okey dokey, I gave credit (to a bank - of all things) where credit was due.

Review: October 09, 1994. And this weary, homeward-bound traveler approaching the summit of Scrub Ridge couldn't resist the sign that read "Fish - All you can eat - $5.95" outside the Scrub Ridge Inn. Aesthetically, the place may have seen better days, but rarely a better repast than the one the co-proprietor, Ruth Seiders, set out on the oilcloth- covered table beside the ketchup bottle and the A-1 sauce. Seiders and her partner, Wendell Strait, do everything themselves. He's the cook whose sauteed whiting coated with a secret blend of spices comprised the all-you-can-eat special and whose crabcakes pleased my traveling companion.
The principal house specialty is steak - from 12 ounces to 84 ounces - and if you can consume the 84-ounce slab and all the trimmings within an hour, it's free. Pictures of three recent winners are thumbtacked to one rough-pine wall, near the entrance to the dance floor.
"We're like family here," Seiders said. Strait said the inn's upstairs rooms - "more like a dormitory, really," Seiders interjected - are booked solid by hunters during the game seasons in the surrounding forest land. ''They keep coming back, year after year," he said.
With food and prices like these, this visitor thought, no wonder they come back. Our bill, including drinks, was less than $15 for two.
