These are so cool! In Tampa, FL, at the state fair grounds there is a permanent exhibit called "Cracker Country." In Cracker Country there is a train car that is set up as a doctor's office. It is the car that my friend Jemy's father, a doctor for the railroad, practiced out of.

Great photos! Trains are pretty dear to me. My uncle worked for the railroad...I'd wave at every caboose just in case it was him. My cousin still works for the railroad, although I think he's getting close to retirement. I've even "driven" a train...hand on the throttle...not much steering involved. LOL The Minnesota Zephyr before it was taken out of service.

I always wondered what a caboose looked like on the inside. I miss seeing them at the end of the train...

Well now I know what a caboose is. How utterly fascinating. Don't your museums take up a huge amount of room...I suppose ours do too - but even most of our transport stuff is indoors.....weather!

OMGosh, most of my life I've lived 1/2 block from trains. I love them. Of course, most or them are like that - in museums. Hopefully, they are making a comeback. Thank you for visiting my blog. Blessings, Janet

see you there! said...

I like trains too. There is a train museum in Sacramento. They rent out space there for events and catered dinners. Back in the days I was working I was lucky enough to go to a conference where a dinner was held there.
