Leavin' On A Southern Train

This is my friend Travis Padden walking on what we thought was an abandoned railroad bridge of the Landenburg Branch of the old Baltimore & Ohio Railroad (in actuality the bridge and thus most of the Landenburg Branch was an active line for the Wilmington & Western). We were exploring the railroad and following it to the abandoned National Vulcanized Fiber Factory when I snapped this photo of him. The title comes from the song "Interstate Love Song" by Stone Temple Pilots
