Old Doors

From old travels. Squeaking in under the wire for Norm Frampton’s Thursday Doors prompt. I don’t always have the opportunity or the doors to participate; but rifling through my image files brought back some sweet memories from our time in Georgia.

We took a mini trip to Savannah, which was on my wish list for our adventures while living there.  We did have quite a few outings, and the time we spent in Savannah was filled with history, good food and some sweltering walks. I blogged about some of the day-scursions on my other blog but thought I would share these special doors with you from our day visiting the train museum.

I think you’ll enjoy the these Dan! They may be familiar and some you may not have seen. So, before the clock strikes midnight let me show you some doors...


This was fun, imagining a handcar trip down the line. Hey, there is a door back there, and it leads into the railroad museum with miniature train sets! 


I really wanted to go in but it was still too early to be open. We didn’t pass it again. 😞
Here are some train doors of old cars in the outdoor museum yard. This is the largest working RR museum I have ever seen. There was even housing for all the equipment used to make engine and railroad parts. There was an exhaust chimney in the yard for the boiler that serviced the machine shops. 
Take a more detailed tour here





Finally a door I could get next to.  We actually went inside a couple of cars but most had to be done by tour only. 

Well, there was so much more to the day but I am confining it to the doors. Happy Thursday everyone. I’ll be glad to feel free to venture out and explore again real soon. Stay safe.


Obey the signs, unlike our friend. Guess he thought it was okay since it wasn’t a landing strip..πŸ™„

    1. I really wanted to try our luck ‘driving’ it but sadly, we couldn’t. It was fun dreaming though! And a real nice couple took the photo for us. πŸ˜€

  4. Under tenuous circumstances windows can be substituted for doors. Remember windows are just doors that may or may not swing the right way and they have a built in tripping hazard. Here hold my beer and watch this...
