POTD - Locomotive 1504


POTD - Locomotive 1504

I was at the Jacksonville Home and Patio Show  this weekend - it's held in the old Jacksonville train terminal, now the Prime Osborne Convention center.  In the back where the exhibitors park is this old locomotive from 1919.   This beauty is 91 years old and just spectacular :)

Enjoy!

The Goat - both the coffee shop and your blog - sound (and look) just wonderful!! I used to live in Ft. Walton Beach so the scenes you photograph are familiar in a very nice way!
This locomotive is fabulous!So shining and REAL...just what a train should look like!
I've come to you from Debby at Just Breathe - I'm new to blogging and so happy she is one of my first contacts! Such an inspiration!
So nice to have found you!

Good morning,
Green Bay has an old train museum which my grandkids love. Ever since the Thomas the Tanker phase of life. Thomas probably started many little kids on a life of train loving.

How was the Home Show?

Trains old and new are fabulous photo objects. You got a great shot of an old timer here.
