a rolling museum

During summer, this steam train rolls along an old track.

Once, this track was used to connect coal mines and steel plants with the industrial inland harbor from where the steel plants got the ore and the coal mined sent the coal. For several decades the track was closed, when a railroad museum got the idea to send one on their steam trains on the track again.

During summer you can meet the train on track at the first Sunday of the month. Additional driving days are in winter around St. Nick (Dec. 6th)

More of my images can be seen at my own blog.

Anyone who has read of my car troubles lately, here or on Photos By Emilio, probably thinks for me to take the train might be a good idea. Well, I tried to take it but there was this engineer who just wouldn’t leave long enough for me to attempt it! I know, not very funny but it’s the best I could do today! Sorry!

So Much To Love

“Grief is a Freight Train,
Oh what’s a little pain
When you’ve got so much to Love.”

Freight Train – Lyrics by Sara Jackson Holman – | MetroLyrics

This deserted boxcar was discovered on  a side rail of tracks just outside the ghost town of Elgin NV.
