Special Features & Current Projects
Welcome to our abandoned & active railroads page.   This is one of several sections of our website.
This page was created in December 2003 to showcase our finds while exploring abandoned railroads in the Pacific Northwest.  Since then,
the site has grown extensively and now has thousands of photos, dozens of videos and almost a hundred articles on both abandoned and active railroads,
equipment and structures.  We've been fortunate enough to participate in the recording of current and past railroad history all over Oregon and the
Northwest.  All comments, content contributions or questions are more than welcome.  please
Email me anytime.   
I Hope you enjoy the site.
