I love trains and railroad tracks. Can’t you just imagine walking forever on them? How many stories do you know involve a train? It’s the gateway to the American west. Historic preservation involving trains and the railroad tracks and beds, once the tracks are removed, are important part of transportation history.
Does anyone know what the “179” could mean? It’s a number significant to me, which is why I took the picture, but don’t know what it means otherwise. A mile marker on the train? A station number?
If you have never read of the Rails to Trails program, check it out. It’s an excellent way to rehabilitate former rail lines to usable, environmentally friendly space while preserving the actual space, vistas, and impressions.
