Here comes the queen
This is a picture of Mr. Paul Lucas in front of our blue switch engine, and he is the reason we are now calling that locomotive "Victoria". During the train ride at his grandson's wedding Mr. Lucas shared with our staff that the train signal they were using is the Morse code for "Q" which people learned with the "Here Comes the Queen" mnemonic which was then replaced with "Here Comes the Train"! The "Q" signal is used when the train is "running against current traffic", "approaching stations, curves, or other points where view may be obscured" or "approaching passenger or freight trains and when passing freight trains". We liked the phrase so much we decided to give our locomotive a Queen's name! Photo by S. Cobb
our curator is expecting
On Friday (4/26/2013) we found out that our curator's baby, due this September, is a girl! Unable to contain our excitement, we threw a mini-shower for her and decorated her office. As you can see we like to have fun at the museum. Have a picture of yourself or your family having fun here? Send it in! Photo by M. Gould
Our visitors come in all shapes and sizes
These little cuties were found running around our rail yard. The baby opossums were gathered up and taken to a rescue place. Photo by A. Vance
This is a picture of the museum's feral cat. Although each of the staff seem to have their own special name for this cat, her official name is Skimbleshanks after the railroad cat in Cats. She is not the friendliest of cats, but much like her name sake she is an important figure in the railroad museum's operation. Photo by S. Cobb
