Ah, now we are getting somewhere! Whit and I are both trying to figure this
out as we are from the Ashville area.
Does that 1909 timetable show anything (water stop, end of double track,
etc...) at Cromley? Could it have been the end of Bells Siding? Any details
(or even a scan of this TT) would be really helpful!
