Unveiling the Past - Ghost Embankments

As I have posted earlier on this blog (DIY - Railroad History Research), finding “ghost Embankments” on topo maps is a great way to locate abandoned railroad lines.

A trek to a set of stacked abandoned railroad tunnels last December (Abandoned Railroad Tunnels) was an exciting venture “in the field.” The curious nature of two levels of tunnels was made even more clear when viewed on a map or satellite view.

Selecting the Topo choice in Acme Mapper shows where the old railroad lines where by clearly indicating embankments. Acme Topo Map
