|I drove down spur of the moment to the Streamliner event at the North Carolina Transportation Museum at the Historic Spencer Shops and even though I spent only a few hours it was worth the trip. The day was overcast and thundershowers threatened but never came close enough to get us wet (we did hear thunder though).|
|I saw a few units I was a bit familiar with...
but most I've only seen in magazines.
|A few units moving...|
|...and a few not (yet) moving.|
|What's the "heritage" of this unit???|
|This guy couldn't move under it's own power, but the museum's switcher was ready for the job.|
|I didn't get the full lineup around the roundhouse but I shot enough...
Pretty nifty, huh?
|...Ain't these units pretty?|
|After the fact I realized I'd missed a few units, and ones (like this grab shot of the Iowa Pacific unit) that I saw but just couldn't get a shot.|
|Amtrak's Veteran unit was the only modern locomotive I shot this day.|
|...and of course when in NC you end the day at one of the ubiquitous barbeque places!|
