Days on the Railroad

Looking back I realize that I’ve never made any mention of a trip to the Rail Way museum so I combined a few shots from my 2012 visit with KeVaughn and Vicky with shots from my most recent visit. The major difference however was the weather so it’s pretty obvious which are different; the ‘sunnier’ ones are from 2012.

Not only did I mix the years … I also mixed in miniature models with the real thing along with Chris’ antics at the end πŸ™‚ Enjoy!

The Roundhouse Railroad Museum renamed as the Georgia State railroad Museum, when it was made a National Historic Landmark

It was the oldest and largest existing nineteenth-century railroad operations and handled freight, passengers, maintenance, and manufacturing at this single location

A short train ride took us from the turntable and up and down the track.

  1. Love the pictures…they are great! When I was in high school, they used to have concerts in that place. It was was just called the Roundhouse and the stages were set up under the parking bay.
    I saw lots of big name band (at that time) come thru there.
    Tell Chris I said hey.

    • Thank you! That sounds like a really cool venue for concerts. Wonder if they’d ever start that up again. Hmmnnn

      Will do! Hope all’s well with you and your family. Best wishes πŸ™‚

Would love to know what you think! .....
