The dismantling of the remnants of Eastern Shore’s last rail line continues, as rails and ties are being cut and upended. This work is taking place in southern Northampton County. The essay below was taken just south of the Webster Canning Plant in Cheriton. Back in the day, the plant was one of the best equipped in the country for Tomato Products and Sweet Potatoes. The warehouse capacity was close to two million cases, and the railroad was a major partner in moving this product.
The removal of the rail line is to make way for a purported bike trail.
