Night Trains – Streamliners at Spencer
Published 12:00 am Sunday, June 8, 2014
The N.C. Transportation Museum’s “Streamliners at Spencer” was three days of rail fan nirvana. Twenty-six streamliner locomotives, built in the 1930s through the 1950s, will be gathered at the museum for a one-time, history making event.
Visitors experienced the largest gathering of these historic locomotives on record, take photographs of each locomotive at the center of the turntable, enjoy train rides pulled by the vintage engines and take cab tours of select locomotives.
