I was down at Rocketts Landing yesterday, walking the dog and wondering about how the Virginia Capital Trail is going to eventually go through Rocketts Landing. The old railroad still runs between the condos and the James River, until it fizzles out into some piles of gravel and dirt at the western end, but the remnants of the rail bed continue on. The rusty skeleton of an old building–a mill or a warehouse, perhaps–quietly stands between the gravel, weeds and water. It would make an interesting and historical backdrop to the trail that will soon pass at its base.
