"There's a saying that under every mile of track there's an Irishman..."
Many H&H readers have asked us about the progress of the Duffy's Cut project, and we've found a new report on how it's coming along.
The Duffy's Cut saga hopefully heads towards a conclusion as an Immaculata University team, led by Frank and William Watson, tries to find the remains of Irish RR laborers who died - some by cholera, others by murder - who helped build a PRR line through Chester County in the 1830's. The local lore says that their restless spirits still roam the track.
