Forest Park Miniature Railroad

Gallery 3: The Train in Winter


Senior Engineer James Alling photographed the Forest Park Miniature Railroad last winter (February 2004) during a rare snowfall. Unfortunately, the snow began to melt by late afternoon of the day these photographs were taken. If you would like a copy of any of these photos, send email to Senior Engineer James Alling External Link. The FPMRR was not open the day these photographs were made.
