All Aboard!

We revisited the Transportation Museum
in Spencer yesterday.
Ignore the date on the pix,
as we are using Sister's camera
and didn't get it adjusted.



We visit here each year we come up,
but there are additional displays
and we always learn something new.



This is the ticket depot.
A train ride costs just a few dollars extra
and is worth enjoying at least once!



One of the many train cars on display.
Love the wording on this one.



Vintage vehicles can be found in this building.



An old fuel storage tank was found here.




Great deal on gas, right?



A beautifully refurbished milk truck.



This is a train switchboard panel.
Can you say "multitask"?



In this bay, vintage vehicles are restored
to their original beauty and function.
Volunteers contribute countless hours to the cause.



Gantry cranes were used to lift cars and move them around.



A ride on one of the only remaining turntables
costs just $1!



We enjoy learning about our nation's history
and this museum is a real gem.

Enjoy discovering the treasures where you are!
Have a great weekend, y'all!
