    Best Railfan trip I have ever taken!!!!!!!

    Now you know why I have over 1,200 Images online just from the D&SNG section of this trip and 4 hours of video that you are just seeing a small section of to highlight the main locations.

    Perfection

    It's as if you have a 1:1 scale railroad with perfect lighting, scenery, and everything. You can't capture it better than this...ever.

    If I ever get to play with trains again, this is how I'd want it.

    That's that cool little island gazebo, with a bridge, in the lake! What a neat place to watch narrow-gauge steamers simmer by....
