Re: Line Markers - Waldorf/Faulkner + cedarville
- As far as I can tell, the route from waldorf to dranesville proceeds
roughly northwest from Waldorf, crossing 301 near the AT&T site, heading a
half a mile up 301, then going NW toward Dranesville. A line also goes north
on 301 from the same site a few miles, then cuts across and head NW in the
vicinity of Home Depot (Washington/Arlington?). A third line heads east,
then presumably south towards Faulkner, rejoining the old route. Apologies
if this is all old stuff. . .
The marker in White Plains is strange Albert- I didn't think the old
Richmond - washington line came that close to 301. I'm tracing all the
routes in the area, and just noticed this. More investigation will follow.
In the meantime, I found just the other day that the newer AT&T fiber off
Cedarville road actually heads NORTH from the road, not south as I had
thought. ROW mowing was done in the last few weeks, and the south path was
still overgrown. What I thought was a marker to the south was I guess some
trash or maybe a tree that fooled my eyes! The markers are number labeled
in .10 mile increments, and the one just before the northern turn is labeled
220 - so I suppose it terminates a 22 mile radius from that point, which
rules out Globecom (Brandywine). . .

- I've posted photos of a repeater hut and route markers for what I *think* is
the Dranesville-Faulkner coax route, which probably became
Dranesville-Waldorf-Faulkner when it was converted to fiber:
