Niles Depot

I went to Niles Depot today to pick up auction purchases (more about that in another post). I had no idea the Niles Depot is _this_ pretty. Located on the old Transcon route via Sacramento to Oakland there's a lot of history here. The building has a museum inside and the Tri-City Society of Model Engineers has their layout in a building next door.

There are also a couple restored railroad cars on the grounds outside, including this Western Pacific caboose.

Nice weathering on the trucks with a cool dynamo contraption to charge the caboose batteries.

It would have been nice to visit the museum or the layout for a bit, but that can be done some other time.
