As my car was being treated at the garage I went for a walk south down the railroad track. Mostly there is no spectacular scenery, just rural, but for the keen eye there are little jewels, like the one above, everywhere. We are walking direction Koksilah River, where I photographed the trestle at an earlier date. This time an animal feed plant is the center of interest. Its transportation of goods still goes by rail. The train comes from up north and I do not think any trains travel south of this feed company. The railroad’s shape is too horrible. People transportation stopped years ago and a walker can keep up with the speed of today’s freight train. As shown so often and here once again, lack of maintenance plagues us. It is the result of shortsighted political economic thinking, where maintenance of bridges, buildings, railroads etc is not on any lists of things to do. At any rate I like walking the railroad so once in a while rain or shine.
The feed mill makes an interesting contribution to the landscape and I like to share a few photographs.
