The old Union Train Terminal in Cincinnati, Ohio. Now home to three museums and a huge wrap-around IMAX movie theater.
http://maps.google.ca/maps?hl=en&ie=UTF8&ll=51.399067,0.52949&spn=0.001168,0.003473&t=h&z=19

If you look closely, you can still see the train tracks that enter/exit the back of the building (there used to be an Amtrack station back there), and the tracks coming out of the six front wings. The far-outside wings were meant for a subway line that was never used (although ten of the original 30 completed miles are still there, if you know where to look...). The tracks that do come out of the inner wings are still there; they dead-end under the park out front thanks to the construction of I-75. There are large portholes in the park looking down on the tracks... my great-grandmother used to tell stories of when she was a little girl, watching the soldiers coming home from WWI through those portholes.

I found this while doing some research at work today...
 
Now there is an honest day's work:

... and certainly something you don't see every day. Nice find JR. As a foreigner I was surprised to see such a rural activity so close to Washington - you folks sure do have a lot of space!

Don't worry, we're doing our damnedest to turn into into strip malls and McMansions, as fast as we can.  Roll Eyes

Actually.... the research I was doing was on the fields just to the north of the Amish farmer... it is probably his field as well, but it is soon to be a 40 acre gravel pit...

Does anyone mind if I revive this topic?
#blows of dust#
I've just updated my google earth to 6.0.1.2032 (beta)
I love the streetview walkthru thing they made. No more clicking on those tiny camera's, just scroll and walk. You can also switch to 3d buildings and scroll and walk. Takes a lot of internet speed, but it works.
I'm going to explore this topic and find some interesting places. Any good ones I must see?

I spent a great deal of time flying around Mt Everest in 3D - It gives a great perspective on just how high that mountain is!!
Another area of interest for me was the South China Sea (and surrounds) there are little islands way out to sea with a single house/building on them. Would not want to be there in a storm.

Did you just go PSSSSSSST at me or have I just sprung a leak?

I'm not retreating, I'm advancing in another direction.

I like flying thru the grand canyon.
