I had never seen this challenge until early last week and I decided to join up with the Round Robin Photo Challenge, at least for today. Mostly because I really like trains.
The challenge for today was as follows: “our very first challenge of the year is “Railroads!” Trains take us here, trains take us there, and they are darn photogenic while doing so. Have you taken the “A” train lately? How about the subway? Do you have a nifty steam train in your favorite park or recreational area? How about a train of historical significance nearby? Even if the only train you connect with is Thomas The Tank Engine, it can be photographed for this challenge. Anything Railroad related counts!”
I took these photos in Henry Cowell State Redwoods Park, in Felton, California where my husband and I met and had our first conversation, which lasted a good 2 hours or more. I can’t get the Johnny Cash song out of my head when I look at them… “I hear the train a comin’… it’s rollin’ round the bend…. and I ain’t seen the sunshine since…. I don’t know when. I’m stuck in Folsom Prison……..”
I took these pictures from my car window on our way home from California last Summer. This was in the Rocky Mountains on the BC side.
I have to edit because I left out a few train pictures that I meant to post!
This train runs regularly throughout the Summer at our local historical village.
