Long Description:
Well I started near a NSG mark my son and I had found before. I looked for reference points along the way but found none. Then....as I came upon "3 Mile" I knew i was near a mark. The description said 2.91 miles up the line and that is where I was. I walked over to the trestle and after a minute or two I found the disk. It seemed to me to be on the north east portion of the abutment - though the description said South East. Sadly. no reference mark (a chisled square) was found nearby as listed.

**Note the pic with my GPS included. The elevation on the disk matches my GPS.
