E. Apache St., Tulsa, Oklahoma.
wrong turn off the oregon TAT.
New concrete crossing.
To abandoned didn't look like anything had been through this section of road in a couple years. It was a fairly steep hill with a bunch of water ruts hidden in the grass. After we got through this section it went back to graded dirt road.
The bed of the former Ozark and Cherokee Central Railway. Built in 1902, vacated in 1942. The only remains I found was the single railroad tie just to the right of my bike.
I live 5 minutes from Centralia
Somewhere near Mill run Pa
Not sure what it was but I would guess it was used for the logging industry.
No I did not cross it!
Bypassed portion of Hwy. 11, Avant, Oklahoma.
You can make it just get a run at it.
Bypassed and abandoned wye intersection of Oklahoma Highways 99 & 64.
Rode some of the abandoned Lackawanna Cutoff in NJ yesterday. A pretty amazing piece of engineering slowly being reclaimed by nature, although NJ transit may change that soon.
Atop the Lubbers Run Fill. My new Cogent suspension got a serious workout here.
This lake was created when they dug out fill material to build the fill I'm taking the picture from. Its 100 feet tall, .4 miles long, and ends at a tunnel.
Inside previously mentioned tunnel
Atop the pequest fill which is the largest fill in the world. They dug 760 acres of farmland to a depth of 20 feet in order to get enough fill material to make this. 6,625,000 cubic yards of dirt and rock.
Here's a picture from 1912 that shows how enormous it is.
At the end of pequest fill is Greendell Tower and station. Just about everything along the cutoff was built out of reinforced concrete so its holding up to the test of time well.
I was running out of daylight fast so I snapped this last pic of Greendell station and took backroads home.

Old US83 a few miles south of Thedford, Nebraska. The new highway parallels the old for many miles. Facing north -
Facing south -
A portion of the Dalton Highway that was by-passed in 2004. This is the better part of that stretch. A little farther on it was easy to see why it had been by-passed. -
I learned how to ride along that rail bed. A little closer to the viaduct at the Delaware, but the same line. It ran on the other side of the hill behind my house when I was a kid. Had a '74 Indian 70 bought as a leftover in 75.
Now some of it is a rail trail.
I have been riding there since I was a kid as well, but I was born in 91 so not all that long ago. From Lake Hopatcong to Delaware viaduct is all abandoned and not made into a rail trail yet but NJ Transit says they are going to start using it again eventually. The Paulinskill Valley RR runs under the Paulinskill Viaduct and is now a rail trail and also the Sussex Branch Trail goes through a tunnel under the Pequest fill in Andover. Lots of history up in this corner of NJ.
