Train Museum Visit…

Last weekend Sandy and I went to the Tennessee Central Railway Museum in Nashville on a scouting mission for a future Strobist meeting site. They have some really cool train things there, several newer and some old rusty locomotives, passenger and utility cars, and other train related items there.

Of course we took a lot of pictures while we were there, but I have to tell you, we had a special treat! We got to get up close and personal with “Thomas” the train engine. Now, if you have a little one, you know who he is!!!! It was very cool to see Thomas there!

Anyway here are some pictures from our visit:
