Well kids, it's time to play another game of "Then & Now." This weeks entry shows Albee's Crossing back in 2002, and below -- how it appears today.
Thanks once again to Stewart Rhine for more "timely" images!

Steve,  Thanks for posting the pics.  As you can see in the top view, Albee's was a real swamp 5 years ago.  The standing water on both sides was almost a foot deep and was over 10 feet wide in places.  As Dana said - our track crew not only puts down rail but is darn good at building crossings, stone work and ditching.

Joe,  The bottom shot was taken in October, 2006 when I took the handcar out for about an hour and a half one day.  I ran all the way to the end of track.  I stopped for photographs in a number of places.
