    You’ve got a few nice doors in this post – nicely done 🙂

    I like the second photo. Did you notice the upstairs door that opens to… nothing! I’m sure there was a landing there or balcony, and you can see where the stairsteps used to go down the side of the building.

  3. Fabulous shots of the train. I love the wooden train station building, lovely detail around the roof.

  4. TexWisGirl says:

    really neat old station. love the water garden, too.

  5. Riding on a train would be fun. I like the look of the train station.

  6. jesh stg says:

    How I managed to take the shot of the building without people I don’t know -it’s always full with tourists there!

  7. I haven’t been on a train for many, many years (other than commuter trains.) It would be fun to go on one again.

    Wonderful clouds forming there!

  9. Love the train station! I rarely eat the crust in order to shave off some calories and still enjoy some pie. 🙂

  10. I like trains. I missed your linkup again. Where does the time go?

  11. You did well. There are some places I would like to photograph before the streets fill with people but I would have to get up at five am and travel for an hour, so I may never get that shot, lol. I only get up at that time for a plane journey. 🙂

    I love old trains and your photos are great. I’m ready to roll down the track.

  13. Love the trains and the critters you saw

    Hello, wonderful shot of the train and station. I love the pretty waterlily and the ducks. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  15. James says:

    Old trains are so cool! I like the reflection and I think the ducks like it too. 🙂

  16. scotiaspinner says:

    I love your picture of the ducks! That water lily is just stunning – they are long gone from here at this time of year.

  17. Toot, toot! I enjoy riding trains. Haven’t ridden many though. Maybe that’s why I like riding them. That’s a cute photo of the ducks. Quack, quack. 🙂

    Hi again, thanks for your comment on my blog. Yes, you can certainly get a spinning wheels second hand. All 3 of my wheels have been second hand, and all from Craig’s List. I still have 2 of the 3 – and the one I re-sold wasn’t a bad wheel, just not one that was right for me. I definitely recommend keeping an eye out. I first learned to spin using a drop spindle, which is useful in learning how to draft the fibers and learning the initial motions. It’s a much slower process, but a good place to start. You might have a spinners guild or group in your area who could get you started. The one thing I should mention is that different fibers are very different to spin. Cotton and silk are among the most difficult fiber types to spin. Cotton has extremely short fiber length, so it is quite tricky for a beginner because it is hard to keep a strand going. Silk is very slippery and thus also somewhat difficult to spin. The easiest fiber to learn with is a sort of rustic-style wool, which would probably bother your allergies. Some people who have wool allergies are actually allergic to treatments that commercial wool undergoes, rather than the wool itself, and they find that they can use wool from small farms that hasn’t been subjected to those treatments. You can also get acrylic “roving” (the stuff that you spin into yarn) so that might be a good starting point for you. If you try starting with cotton or silk, it may be quite frustrating (at least it would be for me.) I’ve been spinning for about 8 years and I avoid cotton because of how tricky it is. Silk I don’t mind now, but it’s taken experience to get there. I hope that helps a bit – spinning is a wonderful hobby! I learned to spin before I learned to knit or crochet. 🙂
