Say goodbye to the old railroad tracks behind Rathbun’s Steak along the Atlanta BeltLine!…

BeltLine railroad tracks were pulled up and recycled last week behind Rathbun's Steak in Inman Park!

BeltLine railroad tracks were pulled up and recycled last week behind Rathbun's Steak in Inman Park! (thanks to Lee Harrop for sending this photo along!)

…and say hello to the new walking trail that’s slated to go down in Atlanta’s northeast section of the BeltLine! Thanks to Lee Harrop, Program Management Officer for Atlanta BeltLine, Inc., for sending along this photo on November 15, 2009 after a large section of abandoned railway was removed and recycled.You can check out this future section of trails and transit by walking south along the tracks from Park Tavern at 10th Street and Monroe or stopping by one of the businesses on Krog Street in Inman Park – which is exactly what a group of us did on Friday evening.

A group of BeltLine staff and supporters gathered on the smoking patio of Rathbun’s Steak – informally renamed the BeltLine Patio – several of whom walked down the tracks from Piedmont Park. Kevin Rathbun even came out to say hello and ask about the latest in Atlanta’s biggest transportation project. Within a year or so, a hiking path will be installed and a previously overgrown stretch will become a high-traffic urban connection.

Keep up with photos and progress on the Atlanta BeltLine website or by joining over 1,500 other folks on the BeltLine facebook group!
