Locked Out

Freight railroads are becoming more isolated. When I first visited the CPR through the Rockies near Banff 30 years ago railfans had easy access to trackside following paths blazed by signal maintainers and track workers. Railroads all over North America, driven by liability concerns and the wishes of adjacent property owners, a path once open in the past is now blocked off with a lock or other barrier
