Hey, so the 'overhang' on 9¾" curves is prototypical ;D

Sorry about the large pics, guys.  I never new my camera would take pics that large!

To start, some older pics (All of the Beaufort and Morehead, 11 November 2001):









Some newer ones; Monday, 13 February 2006:









Ok, I spent most of Monday searching for the remains of the old Beaufort and Morehead in Beaufort, specifically the line out to Lenoxville, the fish factory (as it is locally called), and Atlantic Veneer.  I found out some things I had never known about before with the overall track plan.

Starting at the corner of Lenoxville Rd and another one (can't remember the name, foo!), all that remains of the tail track of the wye:


Here's a siding off the wye tail I had never seen in maps:


Continuing on towards Lenoxville:




The roadbed, once inside the treeline, was remarkably clear of brush.  It would make a good hiking trail:


Further down the road, we see some markings on the road.  My car's rear tire would have been smack int the middle of the tracks:

The overgrown bit is where the tracks went:



Used to be a switch in this area to go to the fish factory:

Former fish factory siding:


Here some track emerges from the woods:

Onto Atlantic Veneer property:



About a hundred feet further or so was the end of the line, 2.8 miles from Morehead City:

A 1926 diesel electric boxcab:



And the story behind it:



It is at the North Alabama Railroad Museum in Huntsville, AL.
The following pics were taken at the same location:

ALCO S-4:



Mercury & Chase ALCO S-2 (ex-Lackawanna):


These shots were taken yesterday while railfanning in Tullahoma, TN. There's a small yard and a CSX depot there:

CSX 6070, a GP 40-2, working as the local doing some switching:



ex-NYC, now CSX coil cars:



Lee, This one's for you, buddy!



Don't ya just love old C&O gons that are all beat to hell:

A bandit on its way to the humping yard


Facilities, including what I believe is a locomotive washing building on the left.  The bandit can be seen off in the distance making further progress to the humping yard.

I think the skinny photo is just to even out the balance of WIDE images in this thread...

Gents, 800px wide max, PLEASE!

Iain,
Those shots remind me of my ghost chasing trips along the Maryland and Pennsylvania through the campus of Towson State and beyond.  A keen eye can still pick out old bridge abutments, cuts and culverts almost 50 years after abandonment.

Bama,
That's a C&O car.  They can keep their little kitty.

Here's some badly taken pictures from a trip I took to Cortland, NY a few years ago.

Along the Susie Q


2 SP tunnel motors are in the consist


An old crossing watch tower in Cortland


The Lehigh Valley freight station in Cortland


The LV passenger station


The DL&W station in Binghampton


And an industry YOU can model!
