N&W/Scioto Valley Question

If it is not much trouble, we would really appreciate this information. We
both have high speed connection so the download will not be an issue.

We've established that "Cromley" was the end of double track on the Scioto
Valley up until at least 1914 (from the Ohio Rail Maps). It also seems there
was some sort of water station just south (railroad east) of the bridge over
the Little Walnut Creek just south of Ashville, Ohio. Cromley, by the topo
maps, was basically a crossing of a farm lane over the tracks, no sort of
community ever existed per se, but one would assume some sort of block
office or tower was there. So any information from this time period would a
big help to our investigation.

Our sincere thanks for your help in this area Jim.
