Montour Trail's Westland Spur to Houston Train Yard

8.31.2014 17m
August mileage: 452
Rode out to find the Westland Spur of the Montour Trail, which is a new section of the trail. (history of the Old Westland RR, Marcellus Shale Coalition perspective).



It's a very nice rail-and-trail section, very similar to the existing rail-and-trail just north of Route 50. There's a few road crossings, only one major crossing.

As you continue along you encounter the Houston Rail Yard, which was a facility of unexpected size (to me, at least). There's a whole lot of fracking fluid being moved on those tracks.
