on Google Maps
For Panoramio (and GoogleEarth), my idea has always been "what would it look like if someone were going there to visit"; and I've tried to do that with "photographs", but there certainly are "snapshots" in my gallery as well; but all with appropriate 'Titles'. I've also tried to keep my 'Tags' as succinct as possible, so other similar shots can be easily viewed. (And, of course the Tag "Not Selected for GoogleEarth" is always an option.) My 'Profile' shot is of riding on the platform between railcars on the White Pass & Yukon Railroad; I grew up in a railroad town and so trains have always held an allure; this ride was a superbly enjoyable time. Thanks for visiting and I hope you found interesting and enjoyable shots.

Hello Martin ... thanks for taking a look, and for the comment, and especially for the Like ... Greetings from the northeast coast of Maine USA, Wally

Hey Michael ... good to hear from you ! ... This old building is right alongside the old Calais Branch of the Maine Central Railroad, this part heading toward Ellsworth Maine. It was the rail agent's freight-house until November 1982, when rail business was centralized to the agent in Ellsworth. Shortly afterwards, the whole 133 mile branchline was taken out of service. It languished in disuse until 2008 when the ties and tracks were ripped up and the whole railbed was turned into a really nice, smooth rails-to-trails facility ... which was supposed to lure tourists to this economically depressed area, but instead is almost exclusively used by locals on 4-wheelers and snowmobiles. Hope all is going well, Wally
