Monongahela-West Penn
The Fairmont-Clarksburg Division of the Monongahela-West Penn Railways ran a route north out of Fairmont to the town of Rivesville, WV.  The tracks paralleled the Monongahela River to Rivesville Power Station at the north end of town.  Many bridges still remain intact along the old prw.  The Picture below, is looking south just below the power plant.  The abandoned prw is now a walking path.  Route 19 passes below the the route just past the white fence. The rail line to the right is the Norfolk Southern, once part of the Monongahela Railroad.  (11/2001)
