Port Townsend, today. Well, the floodwater has receded from the record flow at Vicksburg. Our Associate in Vicksburg, Marian Phillips, got her first views of the Yazoo & Mississippi Valley RR station, inundated by the Yazoo River. The Yazoo actually flowed backward for a while when it was overwhelmed by the Mississippi.
Marian also provided two interesting links, one of which shows the interior of the station before the flooding:
- Marty Kittrell, photographer, posted great photos of the Yazoo Station, complete with bathtub rings. Marty also provided the headline photo for this installment. I recommend you spend some time prowling Marty’s site. He has some interesting shots of “ancient” locomotives.
- Kodachrome Guy posted many interior shots of the Yazoo Station, taken in 2009. His site, "World of Decay," deserves some serious prowling; a lot of interesting material.
Opening date is in September.
