[This is an old thread. I revived it a year later to add a related factoid.] Some of you with long memories might remember my western road trip several years ago, from which I posted pictures en route. I don't know how to paste links on my phone, but you can easily find the thread with a forum search. I'm on the road again, this time to the Midwest, mainly Ohio and Michigan, again mainly for streetcar and other rail fanning, and revisiting places that I was familiar with when I was a kid. And maybe some places that I didn't get around to visiting back then. Today I started the trip by heading up I-26 and US-23 through western NC, eastern TN, western VA, and eastern KY. Sounds confusing? Look at a map and see how the boundaries run! These two pics are from western VA. One is from Natural Tunnel State Park, where early railroad builders saved themselves most of the work of tunneling through a ridge by taking advantage of a pre-existing natural feature. Tonight I'm in the small town of Louisa KY. Tomorrow I'll head through Ohio to Dearborn MI where I'll spend a few nights.
