Chronicles of an On30 quarry railroad

Boscobel Plant

Back in the 80s I had a favorite hiking destination for long walks along the James River.

Luck Stone had a beautiful rock crushing and sizing plant on the south rim of their quarry at Boscobel.

In typical Luck Stone fashion, the machinery was in top shape and the site was swept clean. I would have liked a little more genteel decay for character, but the plant was still very interesting.
