Wish I’d known. Went right by Bristol earlier this month on I-81. Would have stopped to admire if I’d known it was so close. Will check it out on other resources kindly provided by folks in this group. Appreciate everyone’s assistance.

All the daily trains going to and coming from Bristol pass through it. I attach a Google aerial showing the location off I-81 (Exit 5).
