New hope Valley railway (NHVRY) runs once a month during the summer so I thought I'd stop by to shoot some pics this weekend as part of my project to shoot all the places you can take a ride on a train in NC.
It's July 4th so why not start out with a shot of their GE center cab locomotive under the flag.
The shot above was taken as the locomotive moved into position at the front of the train. Below we see the train pulling out from the yard.
The NHVRY usually mixes locomotion between their diesel locomotives and their 0-4-0 oil fired steam switcher #17
#17 pulling towards Moncure.
The crew tops off the water tanks between runs.
