8/26 Outdoor Wednesday #33



Here is a signaling system.

My husband and I found this abandoned railroad track in Weyerhaeuser, Wisconsin.


Here is steel track abandoned.


This is an abandoned train depot.
All the above images were taken at Weyerhaeuser, Wisconsin-August, 2009.

  1. Ah, I wonder where all the travelers went -- what their hopes and dreams were -- and who they saw as they rode the rails.

    Great photos!

    Thanks for sharing~

  2. There are many tracks close to our house. Some are use frequently and some are just spurs to warehouses. My initial thought was, they should take them out of the road so it's not as bumpy.

  4. I was thinking the same thing, just wondering what it was like when it was working. Who was there, where it stopped, what it carried. Neat post!

  6. Im not so sure that change is always for the better. I miss all the trains... seems to me a lost connection.

    Stop by if you get a minute -- would love to have you.
