Did you know?
Did you know that there were train stations at Big Pool, Big Spring and Charlton? There was a flag stop at Ashton. Not only did the trains transport passengers, they carried grain, feed, coal, hay, bark and all types of merchandise. One time the train wrecked at Big Pool and spilled two cars of molasses. The people of Big Pool were stocked up on molasses for two years.
