Wordless Wednesday #11: Trains in Greenville, PA

Wednesday, November 3, 2010
This past summer I visited the Railroad Park in Greenville, Pennsylvania.



Here is the inside of one of the trains. How did they learn the functions of the different knobs? They look so similar.



Here is the switching control board, where one man was in charge for many years. It must have been an interesting job, as well as having great responsibility.


 
Here are more trains:




I hope to post more photos next week!

  2. What a really cool place to visit! I love the old trains, so cool! Growing up my brother had a Lionel set that took up the basement, so much fun to watch.

  4. It's a very small town near the Ohio border. Very rural and pretty.

  5. I'm really starting to love trains, too. Everywhere I go I see trains being either preserved or abandoned. The old-fashioned trains have a real charm to them. Amtrak sure doesn't . . .

  9. That is so neat! I went to a park in LA a few years ago that had several trains similar to this - I took a picture of my uncle standing in one that turned out really nice because I took it with a camera using black & white film. Yep, I'm OLD-school, LOL!!

    Found you through the TFCT Blog Hop at Acting Balanced!

  10. I LOVE this blog! I'm a born and raised Jersey girl who has only recently been transplanted to Virginia, and I miss home so very much! I'm down here due to my husband going to law school in the area, but we hope and pray to move back after he graduates. You've got yourself a new follower!
