Very nice! Almost looks like it could be a cover shot from Railroad Model Craftsman!

This would definitely be a neat place to explore. Nice Shot!

Very nice scene. It looks like the setting of a western movie.

Full marks for getting here. It's a place I've only seen from atop, & would have loved to got down here. Chris, UK.

Another great photo Caroline. Looks like a spot a young Clint Eastwood would appear out of the shadows.

At first glance this picture kinda looks like the shot from the movie Under Siege 2: Dark Territory with Steven Seagal, when the switch throws and they cross over to the opposite side of the town.

Another impressive train-less shot, Caroline! I could probably spend an entire afternoon exploring a site like this. Thanks for taking the time to get photos like this.

Isint this the location where the scene from Under Siege 2 was filmed when they went into the "Dark Territory". The Porter noticed they were on the wrong side of that river.

Very interesting shot. It is saddening to see old main lines rusting away in such decrepit condition. NS's Asheville-Spartanburg line over Saluda Grade doesn't look this rough yet, but I am afraid the same thing is happening there.

I've been asked now a few times if this was one of the locations used in Under Seige 2. I did find out that much of that movie was filmed in various parts of Colorado. Although I don't know if any specific parts of the movie were filmed in this exact location, I would venture a guess that it's entirely possible. I do know that the small airport in Leadville was one of the locations used.
