Nine Arch Bridge, Ella, Sri Lanka 🇱🇰 ‘the bridge in the sky’, is a lovely 30 minute walk along the tracks from Ella. A great example of colonial-era railway construction. 📷 Fuji XT-2
Trainspotting – Last month of steam in Gloucester • Steam haulage was due to end on the Western Region of British Railways on 31 December 1965. My hometown was Gloucester and here are some photos, my painting and pages from my trainspotting notebooks that cover the period 27th November 1965 to 2nd January 1966 – as you will see from the last page, steam was still to be seen in Gloucester after the deadline. • ‘Castle’ Class 4-6-0 No 7029 ‘Clun Castle’ was active in Gloucester until the very end, featuring on the last steam hauled train to operate to Paddington on the 27th November and then on station pilot duty at Gloucester Central until Christmas Eve. • The entry for 1st January 1966 records the very last train to operate from Cheltenham (St James’) station – I travelled on the 21.30 departure which was hauled to Gloucester by Brush Type 4 diesel D1901. On that day I even recorded an ex-LNER ‘B1’ Class 4-6-0 No 61058 in steam at Horton Road shed. • My latest book, The Times Britain’s Hidden Railways, explores 50 of my favourite long-lost railway routes that can be walked or cycled across the length and breadth of Britain. • #books #julianholland #trains #railways #britainsrailways #britainshiddenrailways #railroad #rail #trainspotting #trainstation #trains #trainstagram #railwaystation #railwayphotography #railways_of_our_world #railways_ig #railways_of_britain #railways_of_england #railways_of_europe #britishrail #railroadphotography #railroadtracks #train_nerds
Trains, trains and more trains! Never a dull moment at Los Angeles's famous Union Station. LTEX 18520 prepares to depart on train 911 to Burbank while various other Metrolink/Amtrak trains get ready to start their own trips. #daily_crossing #pocket_rail #ptk_streetview #jj_theyards #railroadtracks #rail_photography #railroadfreaks #metrolink #amtrak #trainspotting #traintrack #commute #cloudy #rsa_theyards #rla_theyards #jj_transportation #kings_transports #splendid_transport #amazing #commuters #metro #la #losangeles #unionstation #followme #platforms #downtownla
I’ve passed this spot on Houston Street and LaGuardia Place hundreds of times and never noticed this Railroad Crossing sign. It’s authentic, old and was put here at some point. There certainly are not railroad tracks connecting Greenwich Village and SoHo. . . . . . . #WhatIsThisDoingHere #NoTrains #newyorkcity #greenwichvillage #houstonstreet #railroadcrossing #railroadtracks #railroadphotography #railroading #railroadphotography #crossings #nycstreet #nycstreets #nycstreetshots #nycphotography #nycstreetphotography #nyclife #nycliving #nycview #nycgram #nycviews #instanyc #nycscenes #loves_nyc #streetsofnewyork #streetsofnyc #streetsofny #maxoonnyc #maxoön

Sometimes I have an overwhelming sense to run away. Occasionally, I do. I make the arrangements, I ensure all of my affairs are in order, and then I leave everything behind. For a while. The thing about travel as a coping mechanism is that, so long as you have the means, you do get to experience something different, try something new, and maybe even challenge yourself in a way you were unaware of before. These things change you. Travel changes you. Some say it improves you, it offers depth and culture, curiosity and meaning. Perhaps when I return home, I'm all the better for it. I can see now that not all of my travels have been out of want. Some were out of need. Many have been both. And I think that's okay. Perhaps one day I'll return a person who doesn't have to run away once in awhile. I'll return a person who just travels. #runaway #justtravel #travel #coping #copingmechanism #perhaps #travelgram #travelling #travelersnotebook #travelwriter #followme #overwhelming #wanderlust #desire #whatido #change #selfrealization #selfreflection #wantvsneed #instareal #instastory #sunset #railroadtracks #ridingtherails #cominghome

Reflection on rails by Bonnie
A tad blurry but CSX Q409 heading westbound at dusk with 5 engines, including a couple of neat ones. First was CSX 99, the last double-digit CSX unit ... Second was CSX 660, which I believe was my last time seeing a CSX AC46 in service while on the CSX roster ... Third was UP 4603, which was a nice foreign treat. Had to quickly switch my settings from pan / exposure to stop-motion, so this was the best we could come away with. 1/2018. #trb_express #railpics_insta #railroad #railfanning #railroadcrossing #railroads #rail_barons #railroadtracks #railway #railyards #railfan #railways_of_america #railfans #railways_of_our_world #trainspotting #trainstation #trains #trains_worldwide #traintracks #csx #csxt #csxtransportation #trackside #kings_transports #the_loco_shop #rla_theyards #rfa_theyards #daily_crossing
Would you pick wild greens from a location like this? I almost certainly would not. Train tracks (and the areas around them) are likely contaminated with arsenic, petroleum products, and heavy metals. These toxins persist in the soil even if the tracks are no longer in use. Plants can absorb these contaminants, making them unsafe to consume. . There are a few guidelines to avoiding contaminated sites when foraging: . -The single most important practice may be to wash what you harvest before you eat it! Most contaminants are ingested from dust or soil that’s blown onto the plant, rather than from the plant material itself. . -Beware of potentially contaminated areas, such as roadsides, industrial sites, railroad tracks, and golf courses. The farther you forage from a hazardous site, the better. Barriers such as buildings, walls, and hedges reduce the overall contamination level. Lower traffic densities are typically safer than higher ones. . -In general, nuts absorb the fewest heavy metals, followed by pome and stone fruits (apples, pears, peaches, plums, etc.), followed by berries, followed by vegetable crops (greens, roots, tubers, etc.) . -When harvesting aquatic species, cook what you harvest before eating to avoid contracting Giardia, an intestinal parasite that causes cramps, vomiting, and watery diarrhea. . -It is probably best to refrain from eating the roots and rhizomes of aquatic plants in polluted areas. . Remember, foraging is a vital activity! While it's important to emphasize caution where necessary, it's equally important to have fun! Don't let these warnings stop you from foraging; rather, let them guide your practice. . To learn more, read my latest blog post!

Melbourne's beautiful steam railway Puffing Billy. Get to suburban train Belgrave with your MYKI card then buy a separate ticket to ride on Puffing Billy-Highly recommended
"Durante tutto il viaggio la nostalgia non si è separata da me non dico che fosse come la mia ombra mi stava accanto anche nel buio non dico che fosse come le mie mani e i miei piedi quando si dorme si perdono le mani e i piedi e io non perdevo la nostalgia nemmeno durante il sonno durante tutto il viaggio la nostalgia non si è separata da me non dico che fosse fame o sete o desiderio del fresco nell'afa o del caldo nel gelo era qualcosa che non può giungere a sazietà non era gioia o tristezza non era legata alla città alle nuvole alle canzoni ai ricordi era in me e fuori di me durante tutto il viaggio la nostalgia non si è separata da me e del viaggio nulla mi resta se non quella nostalgia."

Todos queremos que las cosas permanezcan igual. Nos conformamos por vivir en la miseria porque tenemos miedo al cambio, de que las cosas se reduzcan a no menos que en ruinas.
