I haven't seen a dedicated picture thread for all things railways. So here's a place to feature your photos of locomotives, train cars, roundhouses, tunnels, depots, stations, tracks, trestles ...
 
So in nearby Madison, Tennessee, the local Chamber of Commerce recently relocated and rebuilt the former Amqui, Tennessee, train station as a local landmark/meeting location. Amqui is one of those old locations along the long-passed passenger rail line that's been swallowed and erased by current-day Nashville. It was originally bought and moved the first time by Johnny Cash, to Hendersonville, Tennessee, as his 'House of Cash' Gift Shop, JC being a big-time railroad fan. After his passing, it came up for sale and was bought and relocated to Madison. Here it is:

OK, a trestle. Here's the CSX Bridge (over the Cumberland River in Nashville) that turns into a trestle to reach the level ground out of frame to the left. One very early summer morning on the motorcycle ride, I pulled over here hoping to catch him, and sure enough, I heard the horn first, and he was coming from the right direction.

Thurmond, WV. Once a bustling coal shipping community in the early 1900s, it has been restored for posterity and is now part of a National Historic Register. It was my stopover and turnaround point on yesterday's bike ride, and I was fortunate to catch a couple of trains coming through while I was there.

Le Puy to Langogne line - Arquejols - Chemin de Stevenson-2018-D3-09 by Andrew Priest, on Flickr

We had now climbed up to the top of the Arquejols Viaduct. This is part of the now disused Le Puy to Langogne railway line which crosses the viaduct. Passenger traffic ceased on the line in 1939 and freight traffic came to an end in 1988.

The Chemin de Stevenson passes below the viaduct before ascending a step track to a point above the railway line. We continued to climb for a bit more after this brief stop.
