Awaiting preservation

Clifton Forge, Virginia 

A variety of old rail-cars rests on the grounds of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway Heritage Center in Clifton Forge, Virginia. I don't know what the future holds for these cars but they are part of a history that I believe is worth saving. These rusting artifacts my not be great works of art, but they represent the work and achievements upon which the present is built. We preserve not for nostalgia, but for understanding.

Enjoy the weekend, and thanks for reading Photography In Place.


  1. Just so long as they're not going to be used on the new Silver Line here in NoVA tomorrow. :-)

    1. I was up at Tysons Corner last summer and saw the construction going on for the new Metro line there. It will certainly be better than having to drive in that area.
