Haha, George said it first.

Have a great halloween weekend.

I thought maybe a bobcat was in that bag!

Obviously it takes a lot of steel to keep the tracks where they are supposed to be.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Kudos to the guys who installed and maintain these rail tracks. It must be a tough job.

MB,

Earlier this year I took a series of shots of workers repairing the tracks in East Gwillimbury. The plan was to post the story of how they do it...but I never did it! I lost a ton of photos a few weeks ago when I accidentally deleted them but this series was archived so I still have them.

I just realized I hadn't payed you a visit. Well, this is just a neat shot. I really like the colors above- just excellent!

I need to go down and look at the railroad--don't think they use those hooks. I think only spikes, but not sure. I know spikes is all they use on the railroad I walked to school on.
