I always enjoy the down and out, backwoods, branch line photos. Hopefully you have more to show us.

I pass over the little part that's left north of Fremont several times a week
trying to imagine what that line was like when it ran. Thanks for picture, was
probably after the Norfolk to West Point part was abandoned but still a nice
reminder.

Thank you all for the kind comments. Photographed the line only a few times but have some additional views forthcoming.

Its always nice to see a portion of the Cowboy Line. The only time I photographed any part of this piece of railroad was twice in 1974 when my band was playing in Casper WY. There was a small turntable there and usually one or two geeps assigned. Never did catch a live train.
