My youth was spent in Brigham City, Utah, and Kingsville, Texas. Both cities were hot beds of railroad action. Since my dad, granddad, and uncles worked for the railroad, I gathered an interest in them. Of course, I was also a little boy. What little boy doesn’t like the trains? Now I’m a 57-year-old boy who still likes trains.
When I was out train watching a few days ago, I found a railroad trestle that I had not seen before. Although the day was overcast, dull, dreary, and cold, I stuck around for a couple of hours taking pictures of all the action at the trestle….
Throughout history, railroad trestles have been popular. There’s just something nostalgic…. romantic? …. American? ….about them, as you can see by the action here in just a couple of hours.
