A bridge to history – Wordless Wednesday

Keeping history alive –

These bridges were left in ruins after the trains stopped coming – now they have a new lease on life!

History is being kept alive by restoring the bridges for walkers, riders, scooters, wheelchairs, prams….

  1. What a wonderful feeling it must be to know you are responsible for creating, resurrecting such a lovely corner of the world. Would love to be able to ride along the rail trail in late afternoon. So golden and beautiful. There is a similar forgotten train trestle outside of Cloudcroft, NM built in 1899. It leads to nowhere, really, now. Would love to see it put to good use.

    1. It sure is great to see history preserved Miriam. I always wonder what those who oppose it all think of that – don’t they want to preserve history or are they just thinking of the perceived inconvenience to their lives. But thankfully that’s not my problem anymore, so I won’t worry about it 🙂 I’ll just ride along and enjoy the history and beautiful countryside.

  2. It’s great when these old railway lines and routes are repurposed as cycle and walking trails. We love discovering and exploring these kind of places. Would love to get down to you and walk some of these routes.

    1. Yes Donna, preserving history is so important to us as well! I can’t believe that some of the local farmers were opposed to the rail trail and didn’t seem to care about the history aspect of it, they were more worried about the land they wouldn’t be able to use anymore!!
