A westbound doublestacker runs through Ludlow, now populated by creosote bush instead of people. The remains of the town can be seen in the center of the image. The interstate highway, main reason of the town’s disappearing, can be seen on the left.
Of course, trains don’t need to make intermediate water stops anymore.
Technological advance made this town obsolete.
