Abandoned/Defunct Railroads

Appreciation thread for abandoned/defunct lines. Pic related: Milwaukee Road's abandoned Pacific Coast Extension. A transcontinental line abandoned in the 1979 during the railroad panics and bankruptcies of the late 20th century. It was the only electrified transcontinental line. IMO losing that kind of infrastructure was a tragedy.
