Waxahachie's Inter Urban Rail Road - This is just great. I can remember riding the interurban as a very small child. The railway ran through my family's farm near Italy, Texas. When the interburban shut down my Dad purchased the right of way through his land and we used the roadbed as a road.
For many years we would uncover old rail spikes from the road. Today if you were to tear through the asphalt of main street Italy you would find the steel tracks of the interurban still in place. Thanks for the memories!
