When one of the year’s biggest railroad events is just minutes from the office, you know a few of us here at Lionel just had to go! Those who attended Streamliners to Spencer at the North Carolina Transportation Museum this past weekend had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see some of America’s best restored streamlined beauties up close and a combination of colors, builders, models and railroads normally limited to an O Gauge train platform brought to life in full scale.
For those of us from Lionel, the trip was both business and pleasure. It was a great chance to compare notes on past projects and scout out a few to consider for the future! We also ran into plenty of Lionel fans and it’s always great to hear from you in person.
We saw lots of smiles from those reliving fond memories to those who were seeing a train for the first time. Kudos to the staff at the Museum and all of the volunteers from the many railroads and organizations involved for putting on an amazing show and in keeping these mechanical marvels around for future generations to appreciate.
There are already hundreds of photos of the event on line, but we’d still like to share a few of our own. If you have any you’d like to share, hop over to our Facebook page and show us your favorites.
