Here is one NGS did not find back in 1983 (JK0195). Maybe it was covered up with snow and/or a pile of junk.


The original call was "4 rails" northwest of Milepost 91. Milepost 91 is still in place and looks like it is in the original position. I measured 144 feet. It looks like for this particular mark a rail was 36 feet. The rail has been replaced with continuous (ribbon) rail so I could not measure the length of a rail.


According to the landowner, surveyors come out to this mark all the time. I am going to try to get the word out among the bretheren to log a recovery on the NGS site when they find a bench mark or control point.
