Today, we visited a railroad museum near us. Jenna’s favorites were the HUGE model train set with multiple running trains, tunnels, bridges, etc., and the actual train engine that she got to “drive” and blow the whistle. I was thrilled with all the fantastic photo opportunities and kicked myself for forgetting my good Nikon camera. I had to resort to my Droid camera apps (Vignette & RetroCamera), but ended up being quite pleased with the results! The steam engine pictured above & below is one of the only two running passenger steam engines in the U.S. They’re currently restoring it and prepping it for hitting the tracks again.
Given how much we all loved it, I think we’ll be going back, and I’ll make sure to take my Nikon the next time! Enjoy the rest of the pics!
She really did have a great time, I promise! She just wasn’t in a photo shoot mood, plus, it was FREEZING outside and we were all a little bit numb.
