This is a fairly standard view of the Elkton Mine with the M.T. Boxcar on the switchback spur serving both a small mine at the tail end at one time and the Elkton coal bins by the use of the trestle work.

It is possible there also was a connection with the Low Line grade of the Short Line behind the mine, as that pass just by here and a spur from the Low Line at one time seem to serve also the Coal bins of the Elkton.

I seen one postcard views showing this scene marked with Julia Skolas, hence the info. :-)
