Apr 2000. You know Spring is here when you see all the activity on the trail. I added some old railroad pictures of Vienna and Dunn Loring. I also have more pictures of culverts and trestles to add, but they don't seem to be in much demand. Added a calendar of all the events, too.
Mar, 2000: restored more pictures and information on the railroad in the Civil War, which I had previously posted in January, but which I deleted by mistake soon afterward. The source of this was George Abdill's Civil War Railroads.
Summer, 1999: Arlington County is erecting identification markers at frequent regular intervals to be used in emergencies in conjunction with cell phone calls to 911.
Summer, 1999: The Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority has just opened a new
40 car parking lot for W&OD Trail users at the trail intersection at
Ashburn Road in Loudoun County. This lot is just on the opposite side
of the trail from the famous Partlows Brothers Store, near Mile Marker
Spring, 1999: Added a memoir of life on the W&OD in Herndon after World War II. Herndon was considered to be countryside then! Mar 15, 1999.
Link to Belmont in Old Towns. Feb. 24, 1999. Also removed NVRPA logo in response to a complaint.
