Hello once more -

This closeup of the first car confirms that it's loaded with rail, which puzzles me greatly:

— If the line was about to be abandoned, what on earth was the rail for???

Through – not around – yet another patch of weeds:

Farmington at last (minus a "Photo-shopped" phoamer in the background):

In the long-ago age before "selfies", Ernie handed his camera to a fellow railfan for this portrait while the train was stopped at the depot in Farmington:

The shadows are getting long as loads are spotted – and empties picked up – at an oilfield supply company in Farmington:
