This photo is interesting in the fact that it shows both old and new roadbeds. I've been advised that the red building at the end of the road is the Alford DL&W station, built three years prior to the relocation. The relocation plans were to leave the Alford section in the same location. Relocation plans changed and the roadbed was moved to the opposite side of the valley at a higher level as shown in the photo. This obsoleted the station and a new station was constructed on the high line.

Here is another view of the Alford Gorge. Looking North your viewing both Rt 11 and the new roadbed.
