Just a random picture that turned up on the Intranet that I thought everyone might like to see.



Might make a nice addition to someone's layout.

Thanks,
Randy

Hi Randy,

Great find! In Indiana, I have seen old flat cars used to span irrigation ditches through farm fields.

Cool pic! I don't recognize the railroad colors.
This would be a good candidate for the Rusty Campaign coming up too!
Thanks,

I guess you can tell I had work on the brain when I was posting the picture. I wrote Intranet instead of Internet. Intranet is our internal e-mail system where I work.

Anyway....glad you guys like the picture. I thought it was pretty cool. There was no information available of where it is at in regards to country, state or anything. And I don't know enough about railroads to know anything about the colors.

Even though I am trying to not be enlisted in a lot of campaigns at the same time.........I like your idea Sean and if you are not pursuing it I might indeed enter the Rusty Campaign with this as an idea.

Thanks,
Randy

Thanks for sharing the interesting photo. I'm trying to figure out what is on the other hill. Roof tops?

Not sure myself. I kind of thought the same thing.

Thank you for the link as well. I enjoy seeing the other pictures. Especially the inside view. Not much a floor left in it. How did you happen to find the link?

Thanks,
Randy

I typed in the web search box "recycled passenger train bridge" or something like that.

Seems to be in Georgia (the country) over the Khertvisi river
