This low lying area was the greatest obstacle to the valley portion of the line. Initially it was crossed by a long trestle. As railroad and furnace operations produced cinder and slag, those materials were used to fill the trestle in. The timber remains still lie under the fill. This fill is a favorite excursion era photo op, from the hills to the east and northeast as well as from the Runk Road bridge over Aughwick Creek.
