Spike Pulling


Thanks to all volunteers who helped pull spikes on this beautiful Spring morning . . . and thanks to Simbex for fostering community service. Spikes are being pulled in preparation for continued removal of tracks and rails. We hope the spikes will reappear someday as a major art installation in Lebanon!



Allen Peterson’s sculpture Phoenix: Atlanta’s Railroad Rebirth, which is made from scrap railroad spikes, shoulders, and other objects.
