We went to take a closer look at the railroad workers barracks in Chester, now that the leaves have dropped. Took a look at the lidar mapping, Tom Hoffman had discovered there is evidence that there is 3 sets of pairs of identically shaped and sized cellar holes. Just one pair is stone lined, and one of the two is exceptionally nice with granite stone. This may have been the site man in charge/engineer barracks. The other two pairs are distinguishable depressions the same size. There are 6 buildings in total here, plus a very large squared building one ledge further down by the river, possibly a mess hall.
