If you haven't been, please head over and visit Jim and his hard at work volunteers. The museum is a whimsical collection of trains, a few cars and a lot of dust. It's like getting lost in grandpas basement. They are only open on Sunday's and from now until fall they are offering train rides on 1/2 mile HAND LAID TRACK! It's amazing! The experience is like jumping in a Delorian and heading back in time--AND you can sketch there!
We hid in a dark corner in front of a cool 1941 Mack Fire Truck. I eventually snuck over to an old International Truck, which was very dark to start and then someone hit the lights after I had painted it. I guess it's another excuse to visit!
We also got a rid on the hand-laid 1/2 mile track on a refurbished cable car. While the conductor was giving us a history lesson Genine and I sketched furiously!
