Van Alstyne, TX (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: These cars of the Electric Interurban Railway stand ghostly in the Thanksgiving morning fog. This railway, which was discontinued in 1948, connected small farming communities to Dallas. What a treat it was for kids to ride the Interurban up and down the rail for a few cents a day.

Amazing shot. I had began to wonder if only I here in the old country is being plagued by constant fog. I really wonder if there was an economic reason for closing the railway, or did the trucking companies have the better lobby?

Thanks.  I drive by those cars practically every day, but the fog really got my attention.
