    True, and if they're abandoned, that's a different story. But abandoned and inactive are not the same. The Rockland Branch was "inactive" from the time of the last Maine Central train until the Maine...

    Actually, all of yours I've seen so far didn't look to be in "bad spots," but the one I was concerned about specifically mentions crossing a trestle. I contacted the cacher, and they replied this...
