Railroad Tracks

Along the Leeward coast O‘ahu are railroad tracks that date back to the 1800s, when trains were used to haul sugar cane from the fields to the sugar cane mills. A railroad network covered a large portion of of O‘ahu. Most of the Neighbor Islands had railroads as well.

There is a train that still runs on the tracks above, operated by the Hawaiian Railway Society.

I desaturated the colors to give the photo to give it a vintage look.

I like the vintage look to that picture. The tracks look like they go on for miles and miles!
