    I haven't seen a dedicated picture thread for all things railways. So here's a place to feature your photos of locomotives, train cars, roundhouses, tunnels, depots, stations, tracks, trestles ...

    Fascinating, the timing of things...

    I just finished issue 1 of Railroad Semantics today, a self-published zine by Aaron Dactyl - a photographer and itinerant freight train hopper...

    So in nearby Madison, Tennessee, the local Chamber of Commerce recently relocated and rebuilt the former Amqui, Tennessee, train station as a local landmark/meeting location. Amqui is one of those old locations along the long-passed passenger rail line that's been swallowed and erased by current-day Nashville. It was originally bought and moved the first time by Johnny Cash, to Hendersonville, Tennessee, as his 'House of Cash' Gift Shop, JC being a big-time railroad fan. After his passing, it came up for sale and was bought and relocated to Madison. Here it is:

    This was the shot that first showed I had the dreaded SAB. Fortunately the train detail survived. That was 18 months ago and the repaired lens unit is still fine.

    OK, a trestle. Here's the CSX Bridge (over the Cumberland River in Nashville) that turns into a trestle to reach the level ground out of frame to the left. One very early summer morning on the motorcycle ride, I pulled over here hoping to catch him, and sure enough, I heard the horn first, and he was coming from the right direction. X10, cropped 16:9 for wallpaper, corrected to not be real yellow from the early AM sunlight.
