I like to try and find things that tickle the mind, and once in a while I do even find them! In this particular case I was up near Cloverdale, CA helping my brother in documenting the lost railways of Northern California, when I happened to turn around and spot this. Of coarse I needed to reposition myself several times before finding the sweet spot.

    i love old railroads... you should explore all railroad stops such as Jamestown, CA... Old Sacramento and Niles in Fremont... It would be awesome if we could get together and do those things. You even could get on the old train and go for a ride! It would be fun.
