Rail Salvage from Lehigh Valley branch

Map of the area that we salvaged.

The section of trackage we removed from the Lehigh Valley made way for a 'Rails to Trails' project. This project was paid for with TEA-21 (Federal) Transportation Enhancement Funding.

There are some rails in there... somewhere...

A lot of elbow grease was involved...

 

 

A front-end loader comes in handy.

A wheel from a speeder that we found...

 

Cutting apart a switch track down to its components.

Take out the spikes, clamp on, lift it up!

 

The last stack of rail...

... in easy to swallow 39-foot lengths!

More coming soon!
