Welcome to The Yard at Abandoned Rails. There are many tracks to explore in this yard, including some new articles that have been recently posted; look to the right to proceed down other tracks.
The Yard is Empty!
August 21, 2016: Long-time fans of this Abandoned Rails website will remember that I took a "sabbatical" of sorts back in 2013, and have not really updated the site since. While my passion for abandoned railroads and their history has never diminished, the time I afford to this website has, sad to say. It was nice to take a break (both physically and emotionally) from this website that is a labor of love, but perhaps it's time to get back in the saddle.
If you've sent me an email in the past couple of years, I apologize for not getting back with you. There are simply too many emails for me to devote my consideration and time to respond. Please know that I do read them.
I can't say that the website will be back to its former pace (wherein I was posting multiple abandonments a week), but hopefully the stirrings within me for this pasttime will be great enough this time for me to continue. We'll see.
Until then, I hope that you keep visiting the site and continue submitting your comments, as you have, to each of the abandoned routes presented herein, and please visit the random abandonment below.
