Steel pasta

Spartanburg SC in the Hub City for the railroads with CSX and Norfolk Southern with several large yards and a wye at Haynes Yard. Making photos of engines, cars and different things found around such places, I made a photo of cattle transport cars. I saw the turnouts (switches to the laypeople) at the end of the yard so I put the long lens on and made another photo of the cars. The collection of points1, frogs2 and turnouts looked like someone just dropped the rails down.
1 points are the movable portion of the turnout.
2 frogs are the place where the rails cross over each other.

About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
