Bad Photography Saturday


I was on my way out of Steamtown several weeks ago, when this caught my eye.

One of the saddest times in American rail history came when most railroads did away with the caboose, the office and sleeping quarters on wheels.

Back in the day when getting stuck at a rail crossing was a frequent occurrence, you'd always see the caboose bringing up the rear.  I never had the chance to travel in one.  It always looked like so much fun.
