In my quest to visit and photograph all the places in North Carolina that you can ride a train as a passenger I visited Tweetsie railroad recently. While my family and I enjoyed visiting the park, the train lover in me is slightly disturbed. Why do I say that? Well on one hand they have 2 beautifully maintained and operational steam locomotives but on the other hand they use them as part of an amusement park ride. It seems to kinda cheapen them some how? I guess in the end I'm just glad that they can keep these old steam engines running so that future generations can see and enjoy them. Now on to the pictures.
