Winchester & Western "Sandman"

Off Indian Hollow Road in western Frederick County, VA the W&W "Sandman" begins its climb uphill out of the Hogue Creek Valley in it's journey towards Gainsboro at the top of the grade in July 2013. The segment of track from Winchester to Gore, VA is part of the original W&W grade built in and around 1917 that at one time extended all the way to Wardensville, WV and supplied wood for railroad ties for the Baltimore and Ohio.
