Patty, I could travel comfortable under those conditions, ALTHOUGH, I have travelled on a train two times once to Toronto, Canada and once to Chicago. I have to admit that neither trip was comfortable or that much fun. In both cases, the cars we rode in could have used a new set of shocks or springs. And then there was the time element. What could would have taken one hour to reach our destination, it took more like three or four. The railways in our area our outdated and so are the trains.
Thanks Patty for starting the daily. That is a professional looking capture of the interior of the train coach car. You could get a job as a real estate photographer.
Your photo has nice warm tones to it.
I too have a photo of an interior of a vehicle.
When I visited the car museum last week and as I was walking around taking my photos of the cars, one of the docents walked up and offered to open one of the doors on a vehicle that I was nearby so I could photograph the interior. He then proceeded to tell me more about the 1940 Packard Station Wagon.
As you can see, there is a model truck and trailer sitting on the running board of this vehicle, so I took the photo from the back seat. I actually think that might have been better perspective. I used a shot of the truck and trailer to start the current challenge in the Shutterbug.
But one of the most interesting things that the docent showed me was that the door was one of the only true wooden doors to be built on cars at the time. If I remember correctly, he told me it was a combination of mahogany and maple or oak.
It is actually fun interacting with the docents, they are very knowledgeable and tell you details that aren't posted on the little information plaque. Most of the docents have backgrounds in the car industry, but this gentleman was a Forensic Psychologist. OMG, He was still working part time and I wanted to ask him more about his job. But I didn't want to ask him too many questions and didn't want him to end up analyzing ME!
