Agricola Spur Photos 1990

Ken Goslett shared some more Bone Valley photos. The first three are of the smash board protected diamond where the Agrico and South Pierce Railroad used to cross the Agricola Spur between Bradley and Agricola. In the first diamond photo, the trainman has already turned and locked the north smash board to block the opposing route.  In the second photo, he is turning the other smash board and preparing to lock it.  In the third photos, with both boards protecting his movement, the train is crossing the diamond and he is climbing on board. Then the final two photos are of the Estech phosphate plant at Agricola, which was in its final days in 1990.

Bone Valley Photos in 1990

I got in contact with photographer Ken Goslett who took a number of great Bone Valley photos in 1990. He was kind enough to agree to scan some to share on this website. These are the first pictures he sent. The picture of the tower at Agrock is a piece of information I’ve long wanted for potential modeling purposes, since I’d never seen anything showing what it looked like in 1990. The other picture is right across the road from Agrock at Payne Creek.
