    Those are great pics for us to model railroad road bed. Not very many pictures out there that show a length of track like that. Thanks for the pics. They will go into my archive. :)

    One of these will be going on Garahbara MKII somewhere too. :) (fence and telephone wires as well). Maybe not that long, but something akin to it.

    It's next to that level crossing I posted.

    Hi belg, the center rail is to help keep any derailment on the bridge and not in the river /canyon/ or basement floor.:D :D

    When we did our yard trip we noticed most dead end tracks had the buffer, and not hornes as pictured below.
    More to think on when modeling a yard?:D

    On Chris's shot of the bumper, note how the track bends down at the end (and the extra rails are straight). Suggests that it's been hit a few times with a bit of force -- or are they trying to match it to coupler height? :) :)

    This is on the BNSF Gateway sub in northern California. IIRC it is MP155. Taken on May 5th 2003. Looks like November...

    Here is a section of mainline that looks more like branchline.
