The web service Bing features a daily photograph of some interest with call out points leading to background on the photo. Today (August 8, 2012) featured a railroad trestle in a deeply wooded area. Following one of the call-on points lead to a slide show that identified what is now a hiking trail--the former Abington-West Jefferson branch of the Norfolk & Western, home to the "Virginia Creeper."

Home page, image may be different by the time you see it:

The called out links:

Oh, I can't say how much I wish the tracks were still there--and that the Strasburg's 475 and sister 433 on display at Abington could once again be ridden behind, be seen, and be heard climbing to White Top. . .
