7. Tracks through the trees
How many times have you seen tracks that have been neglected and mother nature starts taking over? This picture displays that perfectly.

8. Railway Tunnel
There is an old railroad that I go hiking along every once in a while. This picture reminds me of a tunnel along that trail. It always seems like it takes forever to walk towards that light on the other side of the tunnel.

9. Tracks to nowhere
Old looking railroad tracks in Colorado. The shot gives a nice perspective from the end of the tracks to give that feeling of going nowhere.

10. Converge
This is a reposted picture from tree pictures. I thought it was a great photo of the railroad tracks as well. The colors are amazing and that small skinny cloud in the sky really makes this picture what it is.

11. Delayed Train
I love the mood and lighting in this one.

    Beautiful scenes, BUT you have put your life in grave danger taking some of these photos.

    Trains are so very quiet today, they can be upon you before you realize they are there. And their size is deceiving, they are much larger than they appear.

    Trains cannot stop when they see you, they can only blow the horn, drop the air pressure and hope you can get out of the way.

    Railroad property is private property, you can be arrested for trespassing.

    And taking photos of people on the tracks conveys to them the idea that it is all right or even safe to be there, when the reverse is true.

    Not posted as a criticism, only a safety reminder.
