The railbed makes a large dip in this area. I heard that someone illegally mined the subgrade from this area years ago.

More turtles were seen in this area. I don't know what kind of turtle it is.

In Thompson, this large building is not used anymore and I don't know what it was. The lawn has been cut and someone is taking care of the yard.

This is the Thompson train station. It is now in use as an ice cream stand. (of course we had to stop for one    )

The next series of pictures were take two days ago. We returned to Thompson and worked our way south. The difference with the growth still down is huge. Here a Whistle post has been preserved.

A rails-trails sign next to a rock that is painted "Jefferson Inn 1871" The inn is to the right of the picture and no doubt was part of the railroad.

Walking behind the building for a picture I spotted what looked like a spur line.

Walking to that point reveals it was a side track. I found signs that it diverged and then converged to the main line.

The side track serviced this building. There are remains of the rail directly in front of this building. The line continues to the right and joins back into the main line.

With the growth down, the railbed is much wider.

After crossing this road, I spotted a retaining wall. You can see here how the railbed actually ran compared to the path shown.

This is a bridge after the large dip I showed above. It has been re-decked.

Here is a similar one taken along the D&H tracks near Carbondale.

 
Maybe it's a storm drain?
