The Great Smoky Mountains Railroad line runs next to the Tuckasegee River in North Carolina, in the shadow of the Smoky Mountains. Around 15 miles up the line the train stops to allow riders an opportunity to explore. The area features a class 5 rapids with a kayak course and launching pads for kayaks and whitewater rafting.
The Chicago Metra and Amtrak lines run through Deerfield, Illinois. I captured and cross-processed this shot while visiting a customer nearby.
