Trip to Streamliners at Spencer - 6, The End

Hi, These images were taken on the morning of May 31.  Dale and I elected to leave at noon as the afternoon activities seemed to duplicate what we had already seen and by doing so I could get home that evening.
As we drove into the museum that morning we noticed the FT AB set still sitting where it had been spotted for the previous evening's night photo session.  We managed a few photos before the set was moved.

We then spent the next couple of hours shooting while a few of the locomotives were moved around and spotted out in the yard.

This GE 25 ton locomotive was used to move units that were incapable of doing so themselves.

In addition to the trains, a small car show was held near the entrance.

This FPA4, a former CN locomotive now owned by the Monticello Railway Museum in Illinois (they also own the Wabash F unit present), powered the day's photo freight.

While the photo freight was operating the shuttle train was set up with the CB&Q E5 on one end.

The observation car Sandy Creek, originally used on the New York Central's 20th Century Limited was present (above photo on the right and below).

Amtrak sent their exhibit train powered by their Veterans Unit.

Thanks for looking.
