Hatfield Crossing


The junction box identifies this crossing as Hatfield.  The town of Hatfield, though, is a little over 5 miles to the northwest.  I was looking slightly north northwest when I took this picture.  I’m just across Tug Fork from Williamson KY yard.  The truss bridge, canted to bear the weight shift on a curve, was made by Virginia Bridge and Iron, in Roanoke, in 1913.  The road is Kentucky 292.  If you look just above the bridge, you can see part of a long coal conveyor belt.
