Looking through the trestle toward the ghost town.
The side of the maintenance shops, still home to several disassembled electric carts.
A full harbor on a hot summer evening, just after twilight, as seen from atop the castle walls.

Lit by the glow of St. Paul’s West Seventh bars, highlighted by the cool blue of the sleepy section of South Side. This castle-like tower can be seen for miles around town; a Landmark at the brewery that brewed a brew by the that name.

The generator hall of the last power station, as seen from the gantryway.
