C&O Milepost 110.4

Station Number: 110
Code Number: 0165

I have very little information about Garnett. On current maps, the site is often shown as Garnett’s Crossing. The station once had a shelter shed, but it was removed in December of 1933 and moved to Campbell. There was a 1647' passing siding (track number 834) listed at Garnett in the 1937 Side Track Record. The passing track was retired in December of 1942 and the C&O discontinued its non-agency station in Garnett on June 5, 1944. Garnett was listed as abandoned in the C&O Index of Stations and Tunnels (1943, updated to 1969). On my first trip to the area I discovered that what was once a rural grade crossing is now the site of a huge amusement park - Paramount’s King’s Dominion.

This is Garnett’s Crossing as it appeared in 1999. King’s Dominion is to the right and there’s a campground to the left. (1999 photo)

Map


This map was prepared from U.S.G.S. topological maps, C&O track charts dated 1963, C&O Side Track Records dated 1937, a copy of the Side Track Records updated through the 1990’s, and C&O Valuation maps, also updated through the 1990’s.
