Was the Ironton RR abaonded by the date of these photos in 1984? I can't see any rails in the pics and it looks like they've been paved over. Gotta love the crossbucks though! I love these old pics from the 80s when they RRs were abandoned but still in place. Post more if you have them.
Ooops, actally it looks like I answered my own question. The pics if you standing on the ROW and the small paved road straight ahead is where the rails were.
One more question... if you follow the Ironton RR row there are dozens of ruins of some type of factories. I assume these were IRR customers. They are literally everywhere. What type of industry were these?
