Last weekend our local photography club met for our monthly Group Shoot at the Pacific Southwest Railway Museum in Campo, California. Campo is located about 50 miles east of downtown San Diego, down close to the Mexican border, along the old San Diego & Arizona rail line. The museum is one of the largest operating rail museums in California. The rail line was completed in 1919, the depot was built in 1917.
We rode the excursion train, which consisted of a restored mid-1940's vintage diesel-electric locomotive, a passenger car and a baggage car, from the Campo station out to the Mexican border and back.
The restored railway post office car in the display barn was full of all sorts of interesting details.
This museum is definitely worth the hour or so drive from San Diego. I gave this last shot a sort of old film processing look - it seemed to fit in with the age of the train.
