Mom was great and watched Claire for us so Adam and I could go on an afternoon date. We checked out the Railroad Museum--I wasn't too excited at first, but it was actually pretty cool to see the restored trains. We started off with a train ride around the property.
The Eisenhower was used during WWII
This one was used as a snow plow for the tracks
This train had beautiful glass cabinet doors in the dining room, with a kitchen and pantry just behind
If you wanted to travel in comfort, the Pullman Porter was certainly the way to go!
There were more trains in another pavilion which weren't restored yet, but still pretty interesting. I was amazed at all the nuts and bolts of this train.
I liked the mail car. On one end, it had post boxes and other implements for transporting and sorting mail. And on the other end of the car was seating, including an upper deck with windows that wrapped over the top. I bet it was great for sightseeing.
Here is Adam showing me his caboose.
