I found this fossil on the rail road tracks by my house.  I live in York County, PA, but I'm not sure which quarry the rail road company gets their stone from.  This fossil is the only one I've found like it, mostly I just find brachiopods.  I've been searching for a while for an ID, and someone on my facebook group suggested this forum.  Any suggestions would ne greatly appreciated!

Welcome to the Forum. :)

 

You are looking at a cross section through a crinoid stem. :) 

I see other crinoid columnals. (round things) 

Neat find.

Welcome to the forum from not too far south of you! I agree with crinoid cross sections.
