Fred Stuckmann General Hard miles on that one, great homepage shot. 10/12/2012 11:55:00 AM
Kevin Gumm General Thsnks Fred. When you say "hard miles on that one," are you referring to you used to drive or work on this route? If so, could you possibly e-mail me? I've been trying to find out more information on this particular section of railroad that runs to Combined Locks. Like history, etc. For some reason I am fascinated with this one and its special to me as I now live right next to it. keving79 AT gmail DOT com. Thanks :) 10/13/2012 9:46:01 PM
Kevin Gumm General Oh and yes I used this as desktop wallpaper on my laptop for a few months. It's just beautiful. :) 10/13/2012 9:48:24 PM
Jonathan Spurlock General Where are the "Ralroad Crossing" signs! You're right, this is a beautiful photo. Thank you for sharing it with us! 12/13/2012 9:33:53 PM
Kevin Gumm General LOL, yeah I always wondered why this crossing, on a major walking/running/bike path does not have any warning signs. Granted, the engineer always wails on the horn if there's anyone near this section of the trail, but still... it's a bit weird. Now that it's winter with snow on the ground, I'd love to get this same shot for the winter season. Haven't had such an opportunity yet. This line is weird -- it heads east in the mornings and back west to Appleton in the evening, but never at the same times. 12/13/2012 9:43:23 PM
