All Aboard!


Something about an old train station 
with its waiting cars 
to depart




tempts me



to step aboard




and take a seat


 to unknown destinations
and 
adventures.

How about you?

(All these wonderful old train cars were in New Hope, Pennsylvania)

I have always felt that train travel was so romantic
These photos could be the posters for that
Beautiful hues and textures
Makes me want to hit the rails

Great shots, Reena. Old train depots and the trains themselves have always interested me. My old hometown of Algona, Iowa now has a winery in town called the Train Wreck Winery. They re-did an old depot/station and turned it into a winery. Pretty awesome, and they have entertainment there sometimes too. They are on facebook.

What mode of transport (maybe horse and buggy) could be more romantic than trains? Beautiful pics and fine processing. Love these.

Oh, yes, old trains are so wonderful, aren't they. What stories they could tell, too.

Your images are terrific. :)

Jennifer Richardson said...

stirs delicious boxcar children
dreams and makes me want to wander, too:)
i love the idea of hoppping aboard
trains and rambling down tracks
through rolling country.
i think i have a bit of a hobo heart....love these pics.
thanks for the wonderful stir,
Jennifer

Beautiful and nostalgic!

Linda R said...

My Dad was an Train enthusiast. He will sit and talk hours about trains. There is so much history behind trains and I just love to listen to him ramble on about them...

Fabulous photos once again my friend.

Hugs~
