This small trestle was for the delivery of coal to local residents and businesses. It was a wood beam deck residing on six concrete piers, with track reaching it via an earthen ramp. The trestle stood about six to eight feet high, adequate for small trucks to be loaded from it.

The trestle and the track on it were removed, reportedly in the 1980's. The concrete piers remain.
