Rails to Trails
Yea for a great idea that is actually being put into motion. Carl and I walked for an hour on this lovely trail today. It is right beside our house and is part of the Rails to Trails Project, although I can't find any details about this specific area on their website. It has been mowed and widened and cleaned up and they (?) have placed plywood over the old trestle to make that portion of the trail a little less scary. When we first bought this barn, thirty years ago, the train was still running. Let's just say this is a much better use of the land. We were use to the house shaking twice a day but it was pretty disturbing to some of our guests. We thought it was kind of funny and had been told that the train wouldn't be in service for much longer when we purchased the house. Much longer turned out to be about twelve years I think.
