CAPE CANAVERAL — The NASA Railroad has reached the end of its line.

Their departure closed another chapter in the story of the space shuttle program’s retirement.
One of the trains’ primary responsibilities was to haul large solid rocket booster segments from the Jay Jay yard near Mims, Fla., across the river to the Launch Complex 39 area.
