New Hope Valley Railroad Museum

Hi Friends,
I hope things are going well with you today. 
I love trains ! I have some pics of a visit to the New Hope Valley Railroad Museum.& Train ride.


We started our trip under cloudy skies .


It started to rain along the way . I took these two pics of old churches as we drove by.

I love an old church.

By  the time we arrived at the museum , the rain had stopped and the sun was out. Yay! 

 

Pics of the Garden Railroad.






Entrance to the  open air  railroad museum. Some cars were set-up  with exhibits inside of them.
