This looks like a great spot. The plywood windows are especially cool. I think my favorite is the next to last where it looks like you are standing on the train.

i have always loved trains.
lately we have been trying to ride the scenic ones in this area. and we had missed this one last time we tried to make the trip.so we had a great time and the observation cars are cool. something about the sound of the engine and the clickity clak of the wheels on the tracks.just sounds/feels good. anyone else ever ride the scenic rides?

I have said for a LONG time that I wanna take one of the scenic rides on the train... but as of yet in my life, I have NOT done it. I'd LOVE to go in the fall....... :drool The SCENERY would be breathtaking I'm sure. :happy

We have been to the same Train yard :eek: Have to look through some old pics we have and see if we can find them :dunno

We took Zack there when he was real young....they had Thomas the Train there.....great time :cheers

We have been on a couple of scenic train rides.....one of the best was the train ride in White Creek NY....thats the station where Rossevelt was sworn in to presidency.

I will def. find some of the pics and get them up.....its been a long time though...we should all get together and go on a ride/phot shoot :dunno

Thats because I was..=) there was a conductor window facing the engine so while we were traveling I snuck up and took one with my 17mm...
