    Another castle! Cheyenne's station building is beautiful!

    Classic railroad architecture has some of the best-looking structures.:cool:

    Beautiful old-school masonry buildings!

    Classic trolleys could run through there and look right at home.:)

    Portland was smart to get an early jump on lightrail throughout the greater areas-Seattle is still building they'res at a snail's pace, while traffic is still gridlocked up here, AND costing billions of dollars more to do it cause Sound Transit dragged they're feet for almost two decades!

    I pay almost $450.00 a year for my car tabs to go towards the RTA tax to pay for it-and I've only used it twice in the last ten years, I should be able to ride for free for what I pay in taxes!:mad:

    Sorry 'bout the rant, back to the trains.....

    If you start to notice some of the early photos in this thread disappear, I've been replacing the old scans with much higher quality scans. I won't necessarily repost them, but it's about time to replace the poor quality ones.
