I'll let you know if I find anything.

These Galveston-Houston Electric listings taunt me, Luke. They are well documented and the great portion of the right-of-way that was taken over by the utilities is very visible.

But I'm frustrated in finding any extant bits and pieces to photograph. The utilities have sanitized the right-of-way.

If you learn of any culvert or rotted piece of trestle on this ROW, let me know.
