These were taken today at the Gold Coast Railroad Museum in Miami.
Like the Caboose photo I posted earlier, each of these are actually panoramas.
Attached is just a thumbnail, and a link to slightly larger sized photos. If you want to see the full sized ones in all their glory, go to my pBase gallery noted in my sig. Since it is pbase, it is easy for you to resize them on the fly for your bandwidth and your monitor. Click ORIGINAL for the detailed pic
PLEASE let me know what you think!!

Love that ACL purple...

Kinda reminds me of this engine. She's ex Norfolk & Western (you can see the logo peeking through the paint), nee Waccamaw Coast Line, now belongs to Carolina Southerm, but it's still a similar paint scheme.

That is EXACTLY right. They got 1804 from the Army, who used it a while after it had served most of its life in Alaska. They even started it up for me. There are more pics of it, including inside, at my gallery:

Great shots, Richard. And thanks for bringing back some memories. I visited that museum a few years back and I had forgotten all about it.

Richard great shots!! I found an older picture (old color scheme) of that E9... HERE (external link)... since you are new to shooting trains that webpage can be invaluable in finding out the history of something you get pics of... =)

Marie - the site of the Museum is huge. It used to be Air Station Richmond - the location of a Naval Blimp base during WWII. Sorry, there are no blimps to photograph!

JT - Orgnoi1 -- Thank you both for the compliments.

The 9913 in that website is the same engine as my Burlington? That is awesome. I love seeing the "then and now" transformation. There is lots more at the museum, so I need to go back and do more photos. You guys are inspiring me to do that.. Thank you! :D

I have added a few shots to my gallery from the museum, but I really need to make another trip!

Yup sure is... I use that website religiously... sometimes you can find pics taken from as far back as the 50's-60's that show the older engines when they were new... its also good on identifying model numbers and engine makes...
