Train coming out of Elbe, 1944
Train coming out of Elbe, 1944

If you had been driving up from Eatonville to Eble in 1944, you may have had to stop for this train, at the “relocation” crossing. (The train tracks had to be rerouted to accommodate the new dam going in.)

Today the trains are a tourist event, but back then they were vital part of the  community.
