Walking today wasn't pleasant. Too wet to ski or snowshoe, too uneven and icy for walking most places. So I went to the back of our property and walked the railroad tracks to Gordon Road and back.
The "bridge" is the overpass above the road.
There's still one of the old mile markers very near our property. This one indicates 130 miles to Saginaw, Michigan. The tracks no longer go that far. They reach only to Baldwin. East from there the right-of-way has become a rail trail. But I guess if I want to walk to Saginaw I know how far it will be!
While I was walking home I heard the train, and soon it came around the bend. Plenty of time to step away from the tracks and catch a couple of pictures. Notice the new paint scheme again. We get one of the nice-looking engines all the time now.
They sure go by fast!
