Antique Engines

Good morning,

We visited the Georgia State Railroad Museum on a rainy day so there weren't many people there.  We enjoyed walking around taking pictures on our own.
This engine is a cousin to...
tractors made by Caterpillar.
If you have a child in your life, you will surely think of Thomas the Tank Engine when you see this one.
I love the hood ornament.  :)

More from the railroad museum tomorrow.

Enjoy,
Lois

I found this post so interesting. I knew a man and his name was Peter Korling. He lives in Big Bear California. He is an artist and he paint trains, of all things. You might, if you are interested, just type in his name on the tool bar and he will come up. His choice of painting trains and his life story ..just all very interesting.
Hugs,
Mona...and also..thank you so much for stopping by and leaving a comment on Danny. :)

Oh, yes, Thomas the Tank Engine. I read that many times and probably enjoyed the first fifty times . . .

Now, Polar Express I could read over and over and never get tired of it. If it were cooler I would go looking for it now.

You must be the perfect wife, you are interested in railroads!! I love the photos especially the Thomas the Tank Engine lookalike. I loved Thomas, probably more than son did.

What a lovely way to pass the day. I love to see olde train yards and I love to watch the trains. There are so many interesting things to do with our lives, right. We spend many a day walking the same paths to the beach, just to see what the tides have left us. I am a first time visitor here and now I shall go read some more and be back for a visit. Have a wonderful day.
