Unless you were around in the 60's, and early 70's, you probably didn't know that there was a spur, short in nature, that came off the west side of the C&O mainline just north of M-57 in Clio. This southward spur wasn't very long, but service a business that was called Clio Lumber. If you search Google Earth Satelite, Clio Lumber was located where the second building is located on the west side of the mainline, north side of M-57 (Vienna Road). The first building was then called Neelands appliance, and I think occasionally, they used the same spur too, for inbound shipments. That building today is the Ace Hardware. The rail spur split the area between the two, but stopped short of M-57. Doug Hefty could probably recall this short siding, as he dispatched this line at that time.
