A couple clarifications to a driving tour in Flames Beyond Gettysburg!

Tim Smith of the Adams County Historical Society and his friend author Bill Frassanito of Gettysburg pointed out a couple of suggested changes to the driving tour of Route 30 to New Oxford.
1. The railroad tracks at Swift Run are post-war, and the site of the cow-train accident was to the south of the current RR crossing across Route 30
2. I should have clarified to the reader that the train station in New Oxford that has the plaque for the 26th PVM is post-war; another station existed in 1863. I had been told that by a local historian, but the text does not indicate it’s post-war.
Thanks Tim and Bill.
