While scanning maps I ran across something that sparked my interest. Further investigation showed several interesting rare old railroad trestles that I wanted to see if I could find to capture with a picture before they vanished forever. This area of Alabama is full of mining operations and most of this old spur is located on mining property. Some mapping detail of the area is in order. Satellite imagery clearly shows several trestles still standing. Would we be able to find the old RR spur? Would we be able to access any of the trestles? Are they even still standing? How thick is the underbrush & kudzu this time of year? My buddy Buzz enjoys this sort of thing. So, off we go scouting for seven secluded trestles. More later.
