Abandoned Rails

Something that I have always been fascinated with is old railroad infrastructure.  This portion of the website focuses on infrastructure that has been abandoned or replaced throughout Virginia and the surrounding areas.  This includes but is not limited to: rail lines, structures, and signals. 


I would like to thank the many people who have shared their knowledge and material in helping me to further enhance these pages.  Without your assistance and generosity, the job of compiling much of this information would have been even more difficult and time consuming.  Thank you!
