Seven looks like looking west at Vera, O.  Eight is at Portsmouth, and the funky signal is a trimmer signal for switch engines,  I dunno ‘bout 9.

P8 sure looks like the viaduct near our old home in Portsmouth, Ohio. We played around the side tracks, old passenger cars and thought we were railroad men. My dad, a US Railway Mail Clerk, would have “killed” us if he had only known. You often wonder how did we survive the crazy things we did.

Thanks for the responses to quiz #2.  Here are the next 3 shots:


p7.  Another elevated electrical case, but appears to be more in the hills than along the flood plain of a river.


p8.  I think this might be Portsmouth O., but take a look at that signal.  Is it broke?  Is this a one-arm version of "restricting"?


p9.  Sort of industrial area/yardish looking.
