Wednesday Walk.... Down at the Depot


20190925_121122.jpg

This morning I went to downtown Burlington to the old depot. Thought I'd show you a couple of statue thingys that are down there.

Now don't forget..... 2 hour parking or you may get a ticket ! :)

I parked about a block away as I had a little business in another store there to tend too.

Like lots of other small cities, they are trying to revitalize the old downtown with neat places to eat, art and fun little stores.

The old depot is in the center of town. Actually, it was moved a little as the main street use to go right across where it is sitting now.

There are some neat commemorative statues associated with the railroad.

A little closer....

.... and CLOSER !

All of the sudden that song is running through my head and making me laugh "Iiii've been working on the raaaailroad, ALL the live long dayyyyyy...... :)

People traveling, coming from everywhere !!

...and the workers..... all kinds.

Train wheels and grist mills..... textiles.... we had it all !

They preserved the old depot. Now it is a museum, but I'm not taking you in the.

....and another. :)

To one side of the front now there is an amphitheater where on the weekends there is live music and sometimes outdoor plays.

I have had part of the code show before, but each time when I went back it was obvious what part of it wasn't right and I fixed it. This time I did look, but couldn't find it and wasn't in the mood to hunt it longer.

Thanks ! It was fun to take the photos and it was fun to be outside on my happy day off.

Sorry about the song..... ok.... not TOO sorry ! If I had to hear it, so did you. LOLOLOL !!

Yeah..... after I got away from it for a while, it was more obvious when I went back. At first it looked like it was over the photos (on my side)..... but later when I went back over the blog, it was to the left making my photos lopsided...... and we just couldn't have that ! ha ha

Thanks !

It has a nice share of railroading history. Now there is a more modern depot on the other side of the tracks for when Amtrak trains come through.
