This series of 21 photos were taken on Feb 27 2000. They're from the beginning of the Fill, southwest to the Westfield river. Once the train ran from West Springfield to Feeding Hills. The Fill kept the tracks at the same elevation as the bridge leading to the other side. Both the tracks and the bridge are gone now, but the Fill and the support structures still remain.
