All Aboard!

There are a few old railroad cars at The Depot in Naples, FL - I don't know the back story of this particular piece of history.  It would have been quite an adventure traveling by rail in it...out west perhaps?

I love trains. This is fittingly done in black and white. (Also, if my toddler were at the computer we would be talking trains for the rest of the day).

Love the retro look so evocative...

If railroad cars could only talk and tell us all the stories of it's travels and the people it transported, I bet it would have enough for a book or two. Your image looks great! Love the BW and the reflection.

Railways always conjure up images of days gone by as you don't hear much about passenger travel by train much anymore. I love that you put the shot in BW. It gives it such a vintage feel.

Pat, this car and the dome car were always my favorites to ride in. This one had the curved back windows and as kids we loved to sit "backward" and watch out the back as everything disappeared into the distance. Our family traveled only by train, to California, Colorado, Texas, and New York. Such fun. I LOVE your old train shot! Thanks for the memories!

How fun it use to be to take a trip by rail. Our depot is no longer in my hometown, but a train museum now. Miss those days. Very nice photo memory..thanks for sharing. :)

Great shot! I love the reflection, and it works so well in b&w.

I always had this romantic notion of traveling on a train until my son and I did a 24 hour trip on Amtrak. The ride wasn't bad, just the frigid temperatures in our travel car which apparently the stewart could not adjust. (and it was mid-summer). Fascinating find - I especially like the shape of this rail car.

Dropping by during the blog hop. Love this photo. The train car is evocative of a classic Airstream trailer. Very Nice. Sue
