    Ca. Railroad museum pics and downtown.

    I admit I stumbled onto the thread a bit late, but I was energized by Tiggerfan's pics, and decided to post some of my own. This trip is old, at least two years ago, but they are still some good pics!


    They have all sorts of train-related stuff here!



    Supposedly all the gold features on this train is real gold leaf.



    My ex (who is five nine) gives a good idea about how HUGE this train is.



    Me in the Cab of the train in the previous pic. How fun would this be to run?



    Another pic showing how large the old steam locos are.



    Look how big the drivers are compared to the ones at DL!



    Interior of one of the locos.



    The interior of one of the cars. I am pretty sure it is NOT the mail car



    This is another shot of the huge cab-forward Loco. Sorry for the crappy pic.



    Governor's Mansion. They just opened up the third floor for the tours.



    My favorite house in Sacramento. This place is supposedly haunted. What do you think? Nobody has lived there since the late 70's.


    Anyways, thats about it! I really should start learning how to take better pics, so when I go back to the railroad museum, they are not so dark.

    Oh yes, I searched the site, and could not find any sort of size limits on the pics. If these are too large, please let me know and I will remove them.

    Thanks!

    That is one humongous train. I'm surprised that the engine and cars fit inside the museum. Must be space akin to a roundhouse in there. The goldleaf sure shines out beautifully. You look like quite the engineer dude sitting high in the saddle! Liked the grub car, too. Thanks for the awsome photos. I love locomotives and their history.

    Some of those Locomotives are just monstrous. I haven't been there in a while. Thanks for the pictures TiggerFan and PinBrian.

    Thanks for sharing the pics! You know I always hated Sacramento when I lived there and now that I don't I really miss it! I find that I'm alot more homesick than I thought I would be and it's nice to see pics of my former home.

    The Califonia State Railroad museum is one of the best in the world. I'm a steam locomotive fireman on a tourist train here in BC and I've been to the museum twice. Some of our equipment visited the museum during Railfair '91.
