Description AFE 345-09 Smith & Kerry Grand Ridge Spur

This collection's documents focus on a spur track to the Grand Ridge Mine. C.J. Smith and A.S. Kerry request the track to be rebuilt and plan to open their mine as soon as they are able to transport coal out via railcar. The track is generally in good condition, yet the bunkers need to be rebuilt. Installment payments are made. Several letters detail a misunderstanding regarding which rails should be surfaced, but the matter is resolved quickly and without incident. The Grand Ridge track was later removed in July 1906.
