Now here is a carload of lumber and I'm sure one could build one heck of a house out of all this. Now I'm getting more curious about what train cars belong to who and who made this product. I found Carrier Lumber and they are located in British Columbia Canada. Click HERE to read all about Carrier Lumber. It's funny, lumber from British Columbia heading to somewhere here in North Carolina?
So in my spare time, which I seem to have a lot of, I decided to Google the letters and number of this tank car. Well low and behold, I get a hit on Google and find out all sorts of information about this tank car. Now I'm not going to put all that information here because it's not info I have created, it belongs to someone else. So, if you will just click HERE then you can read about what they have written up about this tank car. I do know it is owned by the Trinity Industries Leasing Company (TILX). I just found this to be sort of interesting; and so now you know, it doesn't take much to entertain me.
On my way back to Charlotte from Myrtle Beach I was going through Polkton NC and had to stop at the railroad crossing for a freight train. I got wondering who, where, and when were the spray paintings done. What are they saying? So thus the "Art Train", or a poor man's art train.
Click HERE to see more photos of this engine, CSX 4539. There is a website that has many pictures of engines and various cars on it. They show a picture and the location where it was taken.
I will need to come back here to get closer to that water tower. It sets back in the woods a bit from the school and I would love to get some better shots of it. I think I will also need to invest in some combat boots and a walking stick for some protection.
