Cee’s Fun Foto: Caboose!

Photography

Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park in Herndon, Virginia offers peace of mind in the form a long stretch of road for runners, cyclist, skaters, and people who love nature walks.

This park has many features along the way. Walking along this trail is an adventure, you will see kids in baseball practice, golf lessons,  mini bridge, birds, flowers,  art gallery, library, and what not. My favorite part about this trail is this unique installation, a caboose! This is an attraction for kids to explore and learn about old freight trains. You can see the interiors through the glass but cannot go inside. There is also a train station from the years before. It is a charming and interesting place to explore even if the rails go nowhere.

The Washington & Old Dominion Caboose in Herndon, Virginia.

A railroad that once carried cargo and contributed to the economy.
Now it stays rested in Virginia for joggers, bikers and runners to enjoy the idea of acquiring a lesson in history as they warm up for their exercise.

This caboose is forever parked in the ‘Washington & Old Dominion Railroad Regional Park’. I got into it hoping to get into the cabin and see what’s going on in there but the door was locked. As I turned to get down, I saw what’s beneath my feet… a railroad that will never be travelled again.
