    The line to Royal City heading off to the right, the gravel road has all but covered the rail at this point, but I had taken this photo on a trip over Lines West back in 2011. Since then, a couple years ago, the line was somewhat "warmed over" and some maintenance was done, cleaning it up.

    Closer shot of the trestle. Sure hope the Port will drum up some business for this line!

    Taunton Substation. Slowing falling into history...

    Kinda eerie, those transformers on the right were still humming, like a ghost of the substation was calling out to you in sorrow.

    Looking East, towards Othello, one trolley pole for the catenary remaining in the distance, clinging to history...
