I thought about the parks and other things in my area and did some daytrips to the park. One favorite was Pullen Park in Raleigh, NC it is more has a amusement section containing a merry go round and a train.
I did go down to New Hope Valley RR for the last run of steam engine # 17 before being rebuilt
I will take the trip to Atlanta but in April, as projected. In the meanwhile, I have done some train watching, close and hand and cleaning up my videos files (renaming them to be consistent with each other).
I do have a trip planned by train to Greensboro, NC just to watch trains. Greensboro is where two NS line come together.
