Not what I expected

This is South Cedar Street at the entrance to the Milford yard. I expected the cut off to be a fly by, instead it's paralleling the CSX line. Although not finished, it looks like a long siding. I was shown an 1890s picture showing exactly that, but it really doesn't look accessible except from CSX owing to the short distance between the cut off and CSX track - unless there has been some agreement from Bellingham north. That being said, the G&U is fully connected to CSX on both ends.

Since they didn't put a second switch down at the other end I guess it's a siding for some new business? Not what I expected either.

There have been inquiries about the building being torn down just adjacent to this. It's being torn down by the city as a dangerous nuisance after fighting with the pwner for 15 years. It's loaded with asbestos, falling down and infested with rats which have been spreading around the neighbourhood.

Siding for switching fly ash cars.
