Any Train Fans Out There? Aluminum Too!

I spent Mother's Day weekend up near Birmingham going to a family-friend's wedding.... on the way back, Mom wanted to roam through some small towns so we stepped off the interstate... came across this free train museum that had a pretty, aluminum car amongst its collection!

Aluminitis is real, right? I couldn't resist taking a couple pics...

Come on! The wife should be happy! You'd have much more room than the 23' Safari, right?

I'm not a train fan but I can definitely appreciate their beauty and power! Man! A couple of the engines there were just MASSIVE! There must've been a collector storing his engine there because as we were walking around he was firing it up, building steam... talk about going for a "Sunday drive"...

The MASSIVE part is the moving fee! Yikes! Want to do it by rail? Double Yikes!
