File comment: This 1906 view shows the wood frame tower at Quarryville (Milepost 10.8), the first interlocking tower west of Parkersburg. "Q" had control over the two main tracks and four additional sidings to manage helper movements assisting trains to Mars Hill Summit. Additionally, four water columns were available to top off steam locomotive tenders on their journey east or west. Image collection of William L. Seigford
