    Fort Worth, Texas before they rebuilt this multiple diamond. Tower 55. There are a few cars parked way off in the distance on a siding.

    The Lancaster Northern, operated by East Penn Railways, consists of the Northern end of the former Reading and Columbia branch, which also served Lancaster, PA. Trains operate twice a week into Spring Street Yard in Reading to exchange traffic with NS.

    Nice stretch of track at a nice time of year. The rails look well polished.

    Reminds me of a part of the old CN/CNoR/Montreal & Ottawa between St-Andre-Est and Grenville. But yours still has tracks. Not a "linear park" with asphalt paving...:(

    Very difficult to see this way now. Cottonwood trees all around the west end, obscuring the view.

    The tower has been demolished?

    I believe that the tower is still there. They added a third track on the right.

    After the shutdown, this was the furthest west still active signal on the Milwaukee Road's former Transcontinental Main. Looking into a sunset of finality. :( Miles City, Montana:

    Sunset under Gassman Coulee. A train would have sent this shot over the top, but it wasn't to be.

    I guess it's unanimous - WOW!

    But if a train would cross just at that moment, it would have to be steam!:)

    Amazing Hemi. So you took that picture? I wonder the odds of that scene and a train actually passing? Beautiful shot!

    Russell, since the gates are still down, I think it's a fair bet that the rear of the train is directly under your feet. :rolleyes:

    However, that's a great picture, also an excellent example of the artistic vanishing point. :cool:

    Yeah, I tend to have a lot of those type shots. I must have worked in a caboose in a previous life. However there is no train in the photo. :p

    Hey, I never called you on that. You bring so much outside interest to our forum, I just had to pull your leg for fun. :p
