The Railroad at Boyce, Virginia

RR stationThis railroad station in Clarke County was completed in 1913 and is no longer used. A sign indicates that it was repurposed as a library for a while.

I modified the second picture in Photoshop using one of the monochromatic presets under Image/ Adjustments / HDR Toning.

  3. Many of the old train stations have been turned into other things.. I think it is great. There is one in Tunica, Mississippi that they turned into a welcome center.
