  2. Abandoned Tracks

    Abandoned Tracks

    These tracks were found in Jasper Tx. I was following the line on Milam and N Manuel Street. Apparently the line was discountined and no one took up the ties or rails. BNSF once used this line which was sold to WATCO. Timber Rock Railroad uses the line up to the east portion of this track since...

  4. CTRW Hi-Rail?

    CTRW Hi-Rail?

    CTRW must be really slashing their budget...oh no wait thats not CTRW, just a foolish train fan with a buddy out to ride the rails. Of course this line is out of use with a derail set up just east of PA. It's sad that this line isn't still used, as SD40's used to run through here on they're way...
  5. CTRW Meadow Lake Branch (Canwood)

    CTRW Meadow Lake Branch (Canwood)

    After the fire was contained, I decided to venture out to Canwood to check it out. Low and behold three elevators still stand, but the track has fallen into disrepair. This lonely sunset shot represents my feelings towards the beauty of prairie rail but also how I long of the good old days of...
  6. Beachside railcar

    Beachside railcar

    This was found on a lying on a beach on Whidbey Island, WA. The wooden frame lying at an angle seems to have four flanged wheels, as well as a small winch at one end. Several rails can also be seen lying around. I have no idea what exactly this was.
  7. Abandoned Rail

    Abandoned Rail

    Found this down at a park in Everett, WA, along the Snohomish River. Maps indicate a rail spur used to run here, and so does archeological evidence! This was one of two rails jutting out of the river bank. Other interesting artifacts such as a thick steel pipe/pole and a sunken cable lay around...
  8. Abandoned

    Abandoned

    Located outside MCAS Yuma, AZ, these tracks have been severed from the rest of the ex-SP Sunset Route. Left in place, these rails will last a very, very long time in the desert atmosphere.
  9. Salvage

    Salvage

    A salvage operation is now removing the tracks from MCAS Beaufort, SC. In just a few more days, they'll all be gone.
  10. Plenty of Ballast, Short of Trains

    Plenty of Ballast, Short of Trains

    The tracks aboard MCAS Beaufort, SC were well laid, but under-utilized. Aircraft fuel arrives in a pipeline, and a barge terminal provides back-up. Who needs trains anymore?
  11. No Maintenance

    No Maintenance

    The tracks that were constructed with Marine Corps Air Station, Beaufort, SC have not seen trains in many years. Most of the ties have rotted centers.
  12. Out of Service

    Out of Service

    Long out-of-service, these tracks found aboard MCAS Beaufort, SC probably pre-date the air station's establishment in 1943. These tracks extend nearly a quarter of a mile before they disappear into the woods and end.
  13. Rust Pitting

    Rust Pitting

    Long out-of-service, these tracks found aboard MCAS Beaufort, SC probably pre-date the air station's establishment in 1943. The rust pitting on top of the rails reveals that no wheel has rolled here in a very long time.
  14. 1906 Rail

    1906 Rail

    Long out-of-service, these tracks found aboard MCAS Beaufort, SC probably pre-date the air station's establishment in 1943. This rail's foundry markings tell part of the tale.
  15. Trees and Track

    Trees and Track

    Long out-of-service, these tracks found aboard MCAS Beaufort, SC probably pre-date the air station's establishment in 1943. Mature trees grow thick between the rails.

    Newer Ties on Old Track

    Long out-of-service, these tracks found aboard MCAS Beaufort, SC probably pre-date the air station's establishment in 1943. The ties that once were below these rails have long since rotted away.
