    Does anybody remember the old billy goat bridge in burnsville? Built in 1915 and a railroad that ran under it from here to Northfield. Next to the billy was a HUGE dumping area too. I'm planning on going there this spring. Anybody want to join me? Don't worry about trains. It's been shut down for years! Let me know.

    Interesting.. I lived in Burnsville for 5 years but wasn't metal detecting at the time.. When I first started reading your post I thought you might be talking about Blackdog Park with the bridge that runs over the tracks but that's still active [as far as I know].. I don't generally seek out people to hunt with but I'm also not against it.. It's possible that I'd be up for checking it out when it gets just a bit warmer..

    that would be cool if not just to walk the tracks they look like they haven't been used in a long time. I need to find a few spikes and a small piece of track for blacksmithing.....lol

    Check this out, Matt





    There are many vids on YouTube about making knives from RR spikes and I think you can even get them hot enough in a campfire.. Keep me in mind if you ever start making these.. I've wanted one for a while but I have no place to really work on one
