Looking North on a Norfolk & Western track in Risk, IL. The track used to cross the one just ahead but they took out the crossing and added a switch to join the line into the Shippers Interconnect line. From this point north, the track has been removed and poles still stand for several miles. We found quite a few olive green CD 152 Brookfields along here. Farther North, the poles were cut down and the remains (and glass) just lie on the ground. The signals are non operative.
