Long-lost Rail

The amount or RR junk: rails/ties/etc. trackside never fails to amaze me. Why does no one care? You can see the railhead of CPs Sutherland sub at the very top of the photo. These weeds are only 100ft away from a major street likely leftovers of this landscaping exercise: http://tinyurl.com/yqynut
The main factor I suppose is money.
I simply figured that if the MOW forces put the rail there in the first place, they might as well recycle it (scrtap metal $$$) as opposed to barrying it in the weeds. This is in a park, hence city property now...
