BLOODY RUN

Went searching for exposed trolley tracks in town which is pending and ran across this. Today’s light reminds me of Alexander Gardner panoramas shot of Richmond from Pratts Castle after the city was in ruin.

Finding trolley tracks are harder than I imagined. I found a map of the Richmond Traction Co. online that I was using but these tracks on Crane St. I’m afraid are just freight tracks leading from the old C&O depot that was on Broad near this area. The public library had one copy of a wonderful book “RAILS IN RICHMOND” by Carlton Norris McKenny (1986) that is a real gem. Like the Maury bio I read last year this is written really well.
