Old Trains II

I notice alot of bloggers with an interest in trains. I have some earlier posts that get hit 3 to 5 times a day, everyday. I thought I might share a few more shots, especially for a young man that lives in New York who shares a great love of trains (along with his Daddy). The Orange Empire Railway Museum is the West’s largest collection of railway locomotives, streetcars, passenger cars, freight cars and other train-related items dating back to the 1870s. On weekends, you can even ride a train on the sample railway, which looks very cool! (And for a fee they let you drive, which in my case, could be quite scary for the other passengers)!

  1. I had to chuckle at your comment of “bloggers with interest in trains”. There are many train geeks out there(I can call them that because I am married to one!)and I have, on a few occasions, been taken hostage on a side trip to some obscure train museum. This particular one my hubby knows one of the guys that maintains the trains. He used to work with him at Bombardier when we were still in Calif (sniff – I get misty-eyed just typing”still in Calif”). You don’t know how many times we’ve seen something on TV showing a train car and I hear, that’s a blah-blah-blah. OR Oh,#1234 that was one of my cars when I had that contract. The knowledge I have aquired (and promptly forgotten) and have absolutely no use for. 😉 Choo-choo!
