Yep. I really love it the way it is (in spite of all the dumped garbage and contractor junk) but I've known this was coming for a couple of years now so I just go out and try to document what I can before they start the project. We have picked up a whole bag of RR spikes, dated nails, and other things in the last couple of years. It will be nice when done but I love the rustic feel of it right now. This IS Dallas, however, so I guess I just have to be glad they aren't planning to scrape the whole thing off and make a tollway out of it. I am particularly surprised they haven't gotten more push back from the super secret Dallas National Golf Course but I guess they feel their elaborate security fencing with screening plants will be enough to discourage the riff raft. eye rolling smiley

Used to walk the portion from Illinois and Cockrell Hill Rd. to the Interurban trestle and back quite often as a kid in the 50s when it was a live railroad track.
