Southeastern Railway Museum

Engine 1026 – GP7 Locomotive – Georgia Railroad
This locomotive was built in 1950 by the Electro-Motive Division (EMD) of General Motors


I went on another outing with the North Georgia Photography Club yesterday. This time, it was much closer to my home so I was very glad to join them.  The Southeastern Railway Museum is in Duluth, Georgia off of Buford Highway.  I have been here before but had not been back in quite a while so, it was a lot of fun!

The museum includes a variety of train engines, cars and memorabilia as well as other vehicles such as MARTA busses, taxis, and automobiles from years past.  It is wonderful to be able to get up into the train cars and wander around the yard.  There is so much to see and lots of great image opportunities to be had.

The image above is a locomotive and a series of cars that are back in the area where restorations are done.  I love seeing all the track and switches in the yard.  This equipment is as interesting as the trains themselves.

I have lots more from this trip so there is more to come when I get my post-processing done.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
