Riding the rails

Last weekend we took a train ride.  We missed the first leg of the journey – the train chugged right past us, as we were pulling into the station – but we went up and got our prepaid tickets from the counter anyway, and were told that we could meet up with the train in Flemington.

The Black River + Western normally operates on weekends, and travels between Ringoes and Flemington.  This weekend was special, though, and the historical train was going beyond Flemington and traveling the freight tracks to Three Bridges.  We’ve done the regular route before – it is beautiful and picturesque, and so we were not too bothered that we missed that part. We’d still get to see the section of the trip that was new to us.

Turns out the scenery for part two was picturesque in a completely different way.  There wasn’t a whole lot in terms of horses or farms, but there was a nice selection of graffiti, junk yards, and asphalt piles…

Not that I am down on that, necessarily.  I think it can be kind of pretty!

Besides, I had plenty to take pictures of inside the train, too.

Happy Friday 🙂  Anything fun planned for this weekend?
