There are all these old remnants of the railroad around Las Vegas. Trains don't come through town too much, maybe a couple a day. Passenger service ended in 1995. I'm still amazed to see things like this dating back to the steam era. Old telegraph lines run alongside the track, strung with literally tons of valuable copper salvage.

At this location, 3 tracks lie parallel to one another, with all but one set covered in a layer of surface rust. The water tank is speckled with dustings of buckshot from disrespectful gun nuts. The southern face is decayed with rust from the continual assault of the sun.
