Up close and personal

Railroad equipment is fascinating


I found this image of one of the engines at the Southeastern Railway Museum which I hadn’t shared previously and thought I would put it up.  This was from a trip with the North Georgia Photography Club about a month ago.

The museum, which is located in Duluth, Georgia, has a fairly sizable collection of railroad engines, rolling stock, and other transportation equipment.  Below is their description of this engine:

1026 – GP7 Locomotive – Georgia Railroad
This locomotive was built in 1950 by EMD. It was acquired from the Tennessee Valley Railway Museum in 2004.
Status: Stored Serviceable

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.
