One of the old freight buildings down by the railroad tracks Del Rio Texas.
Yesterday while I was in town I moseyed down to the railroad tracks and took a few pictures. Railroad things always seem kind of dark and grungy to me and railroad stations always give me that kind of feeling. There are some very old buildings down by the railroad station in Del Rio but there's also a very nice part of the railroad station because Amtrak stops here So they keep that area looking pretty good, but the rest of it not so much.
There are several old Warehouses down by the tracks that says "Producers Wool and Mohair co." And there are so many of them that they must of been a big deal at one time. The name of the company caught my eye because of Mohair. Because Lord knows I could use some "mohair" get it? mohair! But seriously folks, when I got home, I looked up that company name on the Internet and lo and behold that company was a big deal around here and had an interesting past. I won't bore the folks with that information but if you're interested click on producers wool and mohair co and read a little about them.
It was a beautiful warm day today so I spray-painted a little more rust on the trailer. Seems like every time I look there's more.I know my spray painting won't stop it because nothing short of sandblasting it will, but at least it will slow it down, and make me feel like I'm doing something to help the situation. I just consider it a lesson learned about not staying on the beach for a month. There was a lot of good things about being in Corpus Christi, and I'll probably go back again someday, but I won't live on the beach!

There wasn't a speck of rust on my hitch until I stayed on the beach in Corpus Christi
I wire brushed it, cleaned it, and sprayed it black.
