Thanks for the nice pictures, Tom. It is hard to think of a lockhouse more distinctive than this one. The red sandstone provides a unique look among the lockhouses — and yet it blends in so perfectly with the aqueduct and lock. It is one my favorite scenes along the canal.

Much appreciated, Jamie. It’s amazing how much of the canal is available from River Road. We plan on adding to our 1-50 selection a good bit this fall and winter. As for the lockhouse, it is a lot cooler than some of the cookie-cutter houses on the western end.

Tom did you use a word play from Louis LAmour’s Riley’s Luck? LOL I loved it regardless. It’s so interesting how these buildings have stood the test of time. A true testament to the sort of craftsmanship of the men back then.
