Some shortlines down here are real time machines, especially the Hartwell, how about these scenes straight out of the 1970's on CNW's midwestern branchlines.

The best thing with the shortlines I think is that they are still approachable, in the day where in more places you cant even shoot trains on a class 1 because paranoia about people being on the property, with most shortlines people will be usually glad to talk to you, and in some cases even let you along for the ride.
