Trains and Parts (Museum of Transportation – Kirkwood, Missouri) 3 of 3

This is the last set of photos from the Museum of Transportation.


These photos were all taken on a sunshiny day but this photo always makes me think of the song Crying in the Rain.


Maybe some WD-40 will help.



This is from the inside the cabin of one of the engines.  In front of the engineer is a wall of gauges and polished brass valves.  Where the engineer sits is a large brass, horizontal lever used to control the speed of the engine.  I wanted to get photos of the polished brass items but there were too many kids climbing around and turning the valves.  I mean really, even when I’d push them off to the side they would just scamper back in my way before I could get the camera up to my face.  Finally I gave up and left the cabin with just this photo of a gauge.


These last two are in the top 5 of my favorite shots in the 3 part series.



Thank you for stopping by.


All photos taken with a Nikon D7100 and a Nikkor 24-84mm zoom lens.
