So, I was going through my archives and came across some pictures I had taken back in 2013, the only time I really took train pics until after I got my current camera.
There were only two instances of trains that year, but they were special ones.
I’d like to share these pics with you, as a way for you to relive those memories with me. 🙂
Windsor, VA: March 23, 2013
As part of the inaugural year of Norfolk Southern’s 21st Century Steam program, Southern Railway steam engine 630, on loan from the Tennessee Valley Railway Museum, lead an excursion from Norfolk, VA to Petersburg, VA and back.
My father and I headed to Windsor to catch her as she headed toward Petersburg. It was a crisp morning, with a mid-level cloud deck present, perfect for pictures.
A bit after 9am, we hear her lovely steamboat whistle break the silence. Camera at the ready, this is what I caught.
Pelham, NC: August 10, 2013
A visit to my family in Danville, VA for my birthday was made even more special by getting to share my hobby with my young nephew Caleb. Bright and early on a lovely Saturday morning, we loaded up in my car and headed to Pelham, just south of Danville, to catch some action on Norfolk Southern’s busy Danville District.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these pictures. I welcome your comments.
Have a great day! 🙂
