Can we have an abandoned trains thread?

Post any cool photos or stories you have about abandoned railroads (right of way, equipment, structures, etc.)

Pic related, early twentieth century abandoned locomotive at remote Katalla, Alaska.

>>116427 No but it will take a bit to get there by rail. http://www.dot.wisconsin.gov/localgov/docs/railmap.pdf It's located at Laona on the map.

>>116428 Its in very good shape. Yeah the bell, horns and headlights have gone to thieves but everything else is there. The electrical cabinet is in good shape and other than water from rainfall the engine compartment is clean of grease and oil. EMD 567AC engine.

Pic is of the interchange last year. now there are a few weeds and the tracks have a little more rust on them.

I didn't realize CN had abandoned so much of the WC.

Then again, I shouldn't be surprised since they did it with the IC too.

Took this recently exploring a siding in Girvan (Scotland)that had originally been part of the harbour branchline. The track was very overgrown, indicating it hadn't been used for many years.

>>116430 They only wanted the line from Superior to Chicago. They could give a crap about the rest and it shows on how they treat customers and the towns they run through. There is a reason for a push to re-regulate the railroads in Wisconsin. Also the area I live in is fighting with them to repair grade crossings that I, along with every one else swerve over so we don't damage our vehicles.

Here's Islip in Oxfordshire,although actually only temporarily closed rather than abandoned. The line is being doubled and connected to the Chiltern Main Line at Bicester

No! They pay me too well and those stock options are too good!
>>116440
Yup, that's what they do down here too. They only want big customers and routinely try to out price themselves from smaller ones. Thus the elimination of jobs. :\

This would be a pretty amazing line to walk.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Salekhard%E2%80%93Igarka_Railway

>The 1,524 mm (5 ft) broad gauge Salekhard–Igarka Railway, (Sp~|~p }psyp|, Transpolyarnaya Magistral - "Transpolar Mainline") also referred to variously as Railroad of Death, Road of Death, and Dead Road, is an incomplete railway in northern Siberia. The railway was a project of the Soviet Gulag system that took place from 1947 to 1953. Construction was coordinated via two separate Gulag projects, the 501 Railroad beginning on the River Ob and 503 Railroad beginning on the River Yenisey, part of a grand design of Joseph Stalin to span a railroad across northern Siberia to reach the Soviet Union's easternmost territories.
>The planned route from Igarka to Salekhard measured 806 miles (1,297 km) in length. The project was built mostly with prisoner labour, particularly that of political prisoners,[1] and thousands perished.[1][2]

Also, the Horse-Drawn Streetcars. I've been there many times, but this was the first time I rode it. What you have to do is show up several minutes before the park opens to watch the daily opening ceremony, then RUN to where it's parked just inside the entrance. It only runs in like the early morning hours before the crowds really get bad. There's no elaborate fast pass or reservation set-up for this. It's just first come, first serve.
