Can't remember if I posted this picture of our RR bridge in this thread or not, so pardon me if it's a repeat. Nice place to sit and ponder life...

I like it. Reminds me of my area. I just wished the trains still ran on all the rails. Not like 1/2 of them.

Interesting, They are usually pulled by one or a pair of Warbonnets.

A working CSX engineer's private drone shots show hosteling and both type engine houses, including a working turntable and in-use roundhouse ~ midway in the video.


Fans of large scale modeling and/or steam era British rail may like this video. Six coupled, Mogul, Prairie, Pacific, Consolidation, & Mikado types shown in action. (Whyte notation) Scenery and o'all detail are impressive, including working semaphores.

Small world! In the first few minutes of the first video, I can see where one of our kids works. :)

Been by there many times in the past few years.

Found this photo of a long abandoned turntable foundation in Wawa, PA only about 8 miles from me.
I swear I cant find it on a map.

Heres the caption that went with the photo.
“The foundation for a turntable can still be found near the former location of Wawa Station. The Baltimore Pike (Route 1) is seen in the background. Photo by Ron Ricchezza, 3/19/2013.”

Imagine having a time machine there, going back in time watching it being used, when it was abandoned, etc.
A metal detector used there may be interesting.
