Norfolk and Western

(click on photo to enlarge)

The old Norfolk and Western railway bridge which is now along the Percival's Island Trail System in Lynchburg. We walked this back in March or so but will need to make another trip now that everything is green!

  2. You should go there during the Batteaux festival next month, I can't remember if you did that already but if it isn't pouring rain or flooding, it is a neat event where the boats launch for the trip to just west of Richmond.

  4. I bet it would be fun to run over the bridge, of course I would be tempted to stop and take a picture.

  6. I wonder how long it will be before we start opening rail lines like this again - I think it would be a good idea.
