Spencer Shops, NC Transportation Museum, introduction

How can I love so close but not take a day trip to Spencer Shops, Southern's major engine facility. Now it is the North Carolina Transportation Museum. Trains are a major part of the collection. As you arrive you are greeted by Barber Junction, A Southern station move to this location, to serve as the information center for the museum.
From Barber Junction, the museum runs trains to the other end of the sight and back. Not a very long trip, but as a first impression, it will give you a lay of the land.

While on this trip, we can see the full round house and the collection. We might use the first trip to get oriented but another trip to get pictures of the layout, including items not yet in the round house.
