A huge cut is being dug in the ridge of Pinkerton Horn to "daylight" the CSX railroad tunnel, to allow taller rail cars to use the line. Huge piles of rock and dirt from the cut at bottom are being dumped on the top of the clearcut ridge, visible beyond the trees at the center of this image. Down near the Casselman River are the Pinkerton low bridge (at left) and Pinkerton high bridge (at right), which were built for the Western Maryland Railway and are today used by the Great Allegheny Passage bike trail. In the summer, people swim in the river near the low bridge.
