Abandoned Railroad Tracks
|
 

These railroad tracks, south of Old Bight (also known as David Settlement), lead to a railroad terminal once instrumental in carrying various locally grown crops to the port for shipment to Europe and the United States.

The terminal was abandoned when America shut out foreign exports. Most of the rails were removed, transported to England, and used to make armaments during World War II. A sign marks the entrance to what now remains of the tracks.
