Things you don't see on or off the rails very often

A variety of not so common railroad sights.

Photographs with a railroad theme but not neccessarily pictures of trains. Some of these pictures don't fall into any of the catagories of photo albums I've created. Others, a Jeep with flanged wheels or a door with "Painted 9-85", defy catagorizaton but are true railroad photos.
