Not sure... but I followed that line for awhile until it went back into service and found a crossing with... ASC E-BELLS! And on both signals!

Remains of some tracks in Memphis Tennessee.

As of right now, I am currently getting RR crossing pics from mostly Tennessee and Kentucky. And I will sprinkle in a few Ohio pics. I may also see about getting out to Mississippi for RR crossings, but that remains to be seen.

And they have a shitty pave-over job as well.

Interesting how the crossing still looks likes that, considering SunRail owns it.

Remains of some Railroad Tracks in Carlisle, Ohio. Not much to be known about this abandoned railroad nowadays...

Just a former industrial spur that served this industry at one point. Nothing really much to know...

Some disused crossings in Houston, TX (they appeared to have still been in service in 2007). Plenty of 8-inch Safetran signals too!

The first one listed has since been removed, but the others are likely still intact.

Looks like this line went on for quite a bit. The line appears to end in Germantown. Looks like it used to go farther.
