Trains, Planes, and Automobiles

We've been having unseasonably warm weather this week, with temperatures in the 60s and 70s. On Saturday, I took advantage of the weather to visit the North Carolina Transportation Museum in Spencer. The museum is located at was once the historic Spencer Shops, at one time Southern Railroad's largest steam locomotive repair facility on the East Coast. The museum includes a restored roundhouse, operating trains, and displays on the transportation history of the state, including automotive and aviation.

Santa and his elves get a ride on a 1935 Ford, the only known remaining car from the NC Highway Patrol's first fleet.

A replica of the Wright Flyer, which of course had its first flights in North Carolina.
