I love how everyone is critiquing the train and track attributes. I never imagined it would turn that way. I really did enjoy waiting for it's rounds every few minutes and getting right next to the track while hearing the 'clickity-clack, clickity-clack' as it passed by.
Just a guy sitting under a big tree with a gal making the trains go round and round. There were some full-size passenger cars behind the setup as well.
I left the Crockett pie run and headed down Hwy 21 towards Madisonville. I think it was between Austino and Midway. I think somewhere there's a "Where Am I" post with the big train cars behind it that could narrow it down.Can you be more specific about the location? I would love to go see it myself sometime.
I think the giveaway would be the red iron perlins used for the trestle, the welds on the drill pipe along with the uniformity of the ties. Also, that would be one monster Phillips screw driver.
Still, way cool.
I missed the huge phillips screws.
By the looks of those purlins/c-channels they look to be metal studs, the first and second from the front has the electrical punch-outs visible and those are sheetrock screws that were used. It looks like the bridge deck may be one as well.Is that what they're called? That's what I meant by c-channel. And you can see the u-bolts used to attach the bridge to the fence rail.
Still, a great shot.
