This is a Rail Stocking Trestle site at the Carrie Furnaces in Rankin, Pennsylvania. Steel Ore Stocking Trestle was a common
method of stocking iron ore by the gravity system, by putting tracks on a pile of ore as it advances. Tracks are laid in such a way that the cars roll to the end of the pile.
