Southern Diesel #6133 in Spencer, NC

Sorry for the repeat, I had this in the wrong album before and instead of the photo being moved, the entire post was deleted

A shot of Southern 6133 at the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer, right as it arrived at the station. This is from this past Saturday, and I couldn’t have picked a better day. An early rain kept most people away, so it was easy to get some nice shots without people cluttering up the photos.

I’ve always loved the Transportation Museum, it also brings back memories of the backyard at my grandparents, and the railroad tracks that bordered their backyard. I still remember my first visit as a kid not too long after the property changed hands. I remember walking through passenger cars, in serious states of disrepair. Broken glass crackled under our shoes as we walked through the cars, and even through the big shop. We climbed up in the cabs of the engines, seeing from a location that most can no longer see from.

It certainly wouldn’t fly today, thanks to all the legal teams, but we walked everywhere back then, unrestricted. It’s possible that we weren’t supposed to do all that back then, but there were no signs telling one what was off limits. However, on the other hand, it didn’t have much to offer if you weren’t allowed to walk through everything so it’s just as possible that they didn’t care. One thing is for sure, it made for a very memorable experience.

Things are much different now, as there’s been a lot of progress here over the years. However, it can feel sterile to someone who had a free reign many years ago, without many of the areas being off limits. I understand the need, but long for the freedom of that first trip around 30 years ago. Regardless, it’s still a great place to visit, as you can get up close and personal with a lot of rail equipment.

Reflections of History

I don't normally give anything but a descriptive title to my images.  This one, though, deserved to be different.  I have titled this one "Reflections of History" as the reflections in the windows are of both the historic planes as well as a one-off historic day which will never be repeated.  You can read the story of this great day at the Udvar-Hazy Center here: http://wp.me/p2sjov-1k9

Hello Fans of the Color RED!
Some of you asked for a reminder to our next event: 

Tuesday March 24 is RED Transport Day.
Just tag your photos with both #allthingsred  +AllThingsRed  and #transporttuesday  +TransportTuesday 

It's not just cars, ANY kind of RED transport works. I'll bet you have a few in your archives. Here are some examples :-))
