Only the ghosts of long gone steam trains may persist on this line. The sky is wonderfully foreboding, the light not quite bleak as there seems to be some thin sun getting through, and of course the fall glory pops. I do find myself wondering if the frame is not very slightly tilted to the right? And if I had made it I think I might try to remove the pole and wires, or at least the ones crossing the line. Since the tracks seem to stop perhaps the lines should too?

I love this, there are so many stories to tell here if only the rails could talk. Do you have other views? I suspect twenty-feet to the left and a quarter turn to the right would yield a postcard quality image that might help to give a little last life to such a beautiful place. I would love to see the inside too!
Thank you for adding this. Haunting yet beautiful. How do you do that? S-

The reason I didn't do anything from that included anything more to the right was of course intrusion. Just barely out of sight were huge billboard signs advertising the town Halloween festival, and they were not picturesque. And just past that was the town cafe, which wasn't picturesque either but served up a marvelous fresh raspberry pie with homemade ice cream.
