CSX Nashville Flood Damage

Here's a picture I took behind my friend Paul's house out in western Davidson county near the Harpeth river. Everything you see was under water this past weekend. The picture quality isn't great, but you can see the large piles of gravel that used to make up the rail bed. Above that you can see the track hanging in mid-air.

Just to the left of this scene is the bridge where the railway crosses the Harpeth. It's obscured a good bit by trees and I didn't want to trudge through the mud to get a better look, but it looks like it's twisted and sagging towards the water. It's going to take some major repair work to get this route working again. This is the CSX line that runs between Nashville and Memphis and it's normally pretty busy.

this is the most BORING post I have ever had the misfortune to read and see....I read it and felt depressed

I shook my clenched mit at my screen and swore that if I ever read something as krappy and dull as this again - I would order a very large glass of beer-mesiter and drink my arse off with it

Thanks for the comment. I printed out your 9/11 post so I can keep it by the bed to help me fall asleep at night. Wanker.

Hey Albert

Let's have our sausages back - you greedy little gett.

Me and Mike reckon you've grabbed the whole sausage bag and gobbed the whole lot.
