Default Gallery: Railfan Residences

I haven't seen a gallery thread in a while, and those were fun, so here's one I'm don't think has been done. I really love old stores and houses, so it's always nice to work one into a shot. Here's a gallery for trackside houses that are just asking to be bought by a railfan.

Here are a few of mine and a favorite from Mitch...share away!

Neat gallery!

Not sure if this house is beggining to be purchased by a railfan, perhaps it's just a wee bit too close to the tracks?

A few to choose from along the river. Would have been better before CN abondoned their line to Picton as it passed under the CP bridge and included some street running.

Not a "pretty" house at all but boy you'd sure see a lot of trains! I believe it's a currently occupied rental house:

I'm sure the residents will soon be asking CSX why they built a rail yard next to their new condo’s.

In searching for it, I found that the seach "backyard" revealed a lot of good entries, but alas, I don't have time to post them.

Just off to the left, very nice house on a private road, right next to the BNSF Allouez Branch, with the train, and the CN's former DMIR Interstate Branch off to the right out of sight.

This house has a great view of the Iron Range Sub, there is also a house on an island in the middle of the lake, where the guy uses a rowboat to get out there, in plain view of the tracks.

I personally have had a problem with those trying to tell us to turn railroad photography into an "art form." It's fine for them to do so, I welcome it in fact, but what I do have a problem with is that the practitioners of the more "arty" shots, I have found, tend to look down their nose's at others who are shooting more "mundane" shots.
Railroad photography is what you make of it, but one way is not "better" than another, IMHO. Unless you have a pole right thought the nose of the engine! -SG

Yes it's across from the tracks. But, not a ton of variety.

Still, not a lot of variety. But, the amount of trains and the scenic urban setting make it more appealing.
