Across the street from the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania,
is the oldest railroad currently in operation, the Strasburg Railroad. Mrs.
Shuttletrain and I were given the opportunity to ride the Railroad, the day
after Thomas the Tank Engine concluded its successful season. We were given accommodations
which had a bar in it.
Along the way out, we found the
Caboose Motel, were all the rooms are in cabooses. We had never seen so many
cabooses in one place in a long time. We were guessing the last time was in
Sedalia, MO when MOPAC stockepiled the cabooses before they got rid of them.
They offer buggy rides too…
Look at the window latches, the are made of the finest
metal available at that time.
The cars all have their own heat source, potbelly
After getting off, headed to the
engine to talk to the crew.
Real nice crew, even the conductor, was very
friendly. He could not pose, because he had to throw the switches, so the train
could back down the main again.
That brings an end to this wandering. Where are we
going to wander to next? Check back soon.
