The extra push that made us finally make the long trip was the appearance of three heritage locomotives scheduled to be on site. CSX had their "Spirit of Our First Responders" No. 911 locomotive and the "Spirit of Our Armed Forces" No. 1776 locomotive while Norfolk Southern had their "Honoring First Responders" No. 911 locomotive at the museum.
The museum also had their vintage diesel engines pulling passenger car trains and cabooses. Even if there is no special event going on there is always the large collection of railroad items to see at the North Carolina Transportation museum.
What an excellent roadtrip! Check out more photos over on my photo site. Bubba Harmon Imaging
