2013 - Plymouth Railroad, Louisville, KY

On a recent pass through Louisville, KY, quite unintentionally, we discovered the Plymouth Railroad. The PRR is a "G" scale model railroad layout that has been built into the front, side and back yard at the home of an old railroad buff. The layout contains many elements such as life-like scenes, tunnels, etc. Unfortunately, the PRR is no longer being maintained as according to the owner's wife, the owner of the PRR is now suffering from physical issues keeping him from the yard.

For anyone passing through the Louisville, KY, area, you can visit the railroad at 3902 Plymouth Road, St. Matthews, KY. St. Matthews is a suburb on the eastern side of the greater Louisville metropolitan area. The PRR is also visible on Google Street View.

2013 - The Cabooses of Spring Grove, MN

I passed through the town of Spring Grove, MN, a couple of years ago and discovered the row of cabooses as you enter town from the east. I was disappointed that I had not had my camera along for the ride. During the 2013 spring turkey hunt in Caledonia, MN, I knew Spring Grove was just a short eight miles down the road. This time I came prepared. I suspect that the cabooses are privately owned as they appear on the lot of an industrial site. Searching Google doesn't reveal much of anything about these beauties.
