Album Info:Military railroads have been given many nick-names by the soldiers who operated them such as the Back & Forth, Main Gate & Back, or Wobbly & Western. This album is of a small collection of army trains I have had the chance to see. For even more army rail pictures and infromation see my other album "Fort Eustis Military Railway."
