    If you've ever wanted to view an entire railroad yard - or check out a main line try this FREE application out.

    Googleearth.com

    I stumbled upon it the other day and WOW is it hot.

    Try it you'll like it.

    AND - Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to everyone.

    Waldo is just south of Cerillos, NM. Also fairly close to Gallisteo where Burl Ives lived. Right next to the ATSF line from Las Vegas NM to Albuquerque.

    Not much left of it as it is only a few piles of scrap from the ghost town it once was.

    I heard just yesterday, there are governmental protests about Google earth. From within, and outside of our borders.

    :eek: :(

    I've been by the exit to Waldo perhaps 1,000 times. I've never taken it. I've never seen anyone take it. Last I knew, the paved road ended shortly off the exit, leaving a gravel road to, essentially, nowhere. I've heard the state extended the pavement a few years back.

    Hmm, maybe I'll take a photo trip to Waldo next week.

    Waiting for the Mac version.

    I think the building to the far right, extending off the screen, is Superior Automotive. Jeanne's dad owned that building; his trust still does.

    Some of the rural photos are'nt as detailed, but most of the major metro areas are great. I was looking at the Seattle yard and noticed that there was a game at Seahawk Stadium. I zoomed in and could see all the players in formation at about the 5 yard line!!
