I took this last fall. This particular Geep used to be a high-hood GP38AC for the Norfolk and Western, if I remember the facts correctly (I looked it up after I took the pic). I took the pic with the 3.0 megapixel camera on my cell phone

This is an old Erie RR bridge. It was on a branch from Niles to Lisbon, OH. Very soon a bike trail will come through so I took a pic just in case they replace the bridge.


And this was sitting on the tracks below. See the bridge abutment in the background.

Shot taken at Strasburg.  Don't know anything about it but it is kinda cool looking.

It was originally a 3 foot gauge combine on the Lancaster Oxford & Southern, converted in 1915, then sold when the line closed a couple years later. I don't know the full extent of it's travels, but in the 1970s it was used on the Wolfeboro Railroad in New Hampshire, then in the 80s as a "trolley" on the former B&M industrial trackage in the city of Lowell.
