Along a windy country road in beautiful Vermont, an unexpected surprise appeared around the bend. The Passumpsic Railroad company is a family owned business, where train collecting is taken to a new level. It appears that Granddad loves trains, and has a wonderful collection of real antique train cars and a steam engine locomotive known as a 0-4-4-0. They have an operating train engine and offer holiday rides for everyone.
While I was busy checking out the trains, seems a little miniature stallion was checking me out. I finally noticed him and went over to say hello. He enthusiastically neighed back.
It just shows you that you never know what you may find around the corner.
LOVE the stallion moment. And you are SO right. We just never ever know what’s around the corner… SO glad we have our cameras to share those around-the-corner moments, Emily… aren’t you? 🙂
Indeed, although you’ve been much better about getting out lately and shooting, while I haven’t been. Between Jury duty and a dressage clinic I’ve been busy. But starting early in the morning for hopefully some tall ships under sail.
I freaking love old trains. These are fantastic. Even more so because RANDOM HORSIE! How cool is that?
It was more than super cool L.S. He was full of personality and totally distracted me from the trains. LOL!
That old 0-4-4-0 engine looks like it needs a lot of work, I hope that they are able to restore it. It is an unusual layout, and looks like a narrow gauge engine.
You’re absolutely right, it is a narrow gauge train collection. Guess it didn’t carry much. I think this one is more for display than anything. Super cool though.
I love finding places like this!
Love the stallion.
Of course, great things come in little packages, and this little boy knew it. LOL!
great photos of old trains – beautiful colours
Thank you so much Veronica! I was thrilled to find them.
