    Attractive photos, a great interplay of lines and light in the first. Are the two photos taken of the same bridge?

    Jack, both are great shots but for different reasons! Do you have any idea what the purpose of the additional rails are for once the track enters the bridge?

    Very nice Jack.

    I always find it fascinating to see simply well captured photos like #1 that are so pleasant.

    In #2 you had a game of the light played just for you!

    Shooting 'square on' to a subject can often produce uninspiring results. But in these instances, they have created a good sense of perspective.

    Thanks Bobo. I was able to do some research on this and the consensus seems to be that these center rails are called ‘Bull Rails’ and their purpose is to keep a derailed rail car from being able to roll off to the side and strike and/or damage the structural integrity and strength of the bridge or any other support columns that are in close proximity to the rail line.

    It's been a good day. I learned something new!

    Ahhhh, contain derailment and not facilitate it. Well I got it half right.
