Down the Tracks

This is a quick one from the archives for today: the World's Fair Park was built on an old railroad yard. There is still one active track left that slices through the park between the art museum and the Sunsphere to remind us of this legacy.

Another note to the CDPB world: these past few months have been so hectic, I regret that I haven't had time to visit your blogs. I'm often surprised that I can still sustain this one. Thanks to the three or four of you who still drop by! No worries, I'll be back.

My cup runneth over. But the good news is, my cup is full of red wine.

See those two center rails...there is a reason for them over the bridge. I wonder if you know why. I used to.

Nice archieve shot. train tracks are always a good bet. here the tracks are fenced off, if you are caught ion them you get a huge fine!

Don't worry about the none visiting, we like coming over to yours! Stop over filling that glass and get one for me!

Its good to be busy. As long as you dont take the rail out of town.

This is my first time visiting your blog...love the black and white...but I really want to be on a train on the tracks with one of those glasses of wine going somewhere fabulous!!!
I applaud you for being able to keep up with the Daily Photo posting...I hesitate to "join the club" because I'm not sure I could keep up...I've only just tackled the blogging world and still feel like a dinosaur!!!
Great photos!!!
