Škoda, že už nechodí vlak z Piešťan do Vrbového. Staré dobré časy keď si sa z Brezovej pod Bradlom dostal vlakom až do Bratislavy. Najmä po náročnom absolvovaní Trnavskej 100. 😁 #railway#oldrailways#piestany#zsr

A great time was had by all at our guided walk this past Saturday!
Our walk on an abandoned railroad bed inspired discussions about history, travel, Letchworth Village, Happy Valley Orphanage and Rockland’s hidden “Bayou”! We saw frogs and lush greenery. We talked about Rockland: past, present and future!
The walk was attended by a terrific group of young people whose interest was piqued looking for remnants of the former railroad….and they found them! Lots of railroad spikes and relics from trains of the past. It was a great scavenger hunt and adventure day!
If you would like to be on our outreach list for our next walk, send your information to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks to our guide Jack Bloom! Also, to our sponsors: County of Rockland, RC Dept of Health, RC Youth Bureau and Rockland Conservation & Service Corps.

Dr Beeching said goodbye to this short but picturesque rail link between Barnstaple’s ex GWR station & the Southern region Town station over 50 years ago. Both the GWR line from Taunton went together with the ilfracombe link & later the Bideford branch. 🤷🏻♂️Ah....(f/kin get over it 🤪)
Angel’s Flight | 2018 + 1960s | DTLA
Angel’s Flight is a funicular railway located in the Historic Core, and it is one of the last surviving pieces of history from Bunker Hill. The above photo, taken shortly before its first closure in 1969, shows the original train cars, Olivet and Sinai, which transported Bunker Hill residents to the commercial district below for almost seventy years. When Bunker Hill was razed, the railway was dismantled and the cars were put in storage - Sinai was later put on display at the Bandstand Museum, but Olivet was stored in the building’s garage. They remained there for 27 years, awaiting the reopening of the railway which was originally slated for the early 1970s. In 1996, Angel’s Flight was finally restored with its original cars, half a block from its original location. After several additional closures and renovations, Angel’s Flight is currently open to the public, and you can ride Olivet and Sinai 300 feet up from Hill Street to Olive for $1 a ride #fLAshbackLA
