A Tree Grows.... by ericseyes

Notice anything Odd about this picture? The tree along with many others is growing up between the rails. It’s obvious these tracks have not been used in some time. There are about 20 or more CSX tanker cars just sitting along side waiting patiently to be used again.

Another sad relic of our modern society.

    how odd…makes for an interesting photo.

  • Yea, there is almost a whole grove growing up. Soon you probably won’t even see the tracks. Thanks for commenting.

    Nature does have a way of pointing out how temporary all our exploits really are.
    Nice shot … it tells a story, though perhaps one we don’t want to hear?

  • Yea, cause it means no more trains on this line. They are running a bit more on other lines though in our town, so all hope is not lost.

    This is so sad. I love riding the train, hate to see them just wating away.

  • Yea, me too, all the cars that were on the track near by you could tell had been sitting for ages.
