One in a periodic series of images that I made last summer
I presume that these rails lying on the ballast in Olmsted Falls are new. That’s because they are rusty and do not look worn.
I spotted them last July near the crossing of the Chicago Line of Norfolk Southern and Mapleway Drive.
I was waiting for an eastbound manifest freight to arrive and decided to get make a “detail” image.
I never checked to see if the rails were, indeed, installed at this location. I can only presume that they were.
