morris avenue choo choo



 Morris Avenue 
is a 
quaint 
cobblestone 
street
in
Birmingham, Alabama
if you walk toward
the rail yard end 
there is
this 
now 
empty 
building 
with a 
red 
train car 

I am not sure if its an engine or a caboose  

What say you Suldog?







that
 is the view 
from 
Morris Avenue

Its the 
real
 trainyard 
in 
Birmingham
love that vanishing point

  2. Well, it looks like the caboose on my Lionel train set, from what I can see! Great place.

    Love that perspective....

  3. I say it's a caboose. Have always loved trains... our pizza parlor has a toy one that goes around and around near the ceiling.. It's noisy but I LOVE IT.

    You're right... great vanishing point on that photo.

  4. I will go for the caboose rather than the engine. And I love the vanishing point.

  5. I love all the angles you chose

    I was thinking Morris Ave, Bronx when I first saw the title :)

  7. Back in the day, that train car used to be a restaurant. I had some very delicious Sangria there once.

  9. My favorite is actually the sign with the warnings. How interesting that they used the different size type to catch the eye and make people read it (or at least say they tried). Very cool!

    I guess whether it's a caboose or an engine depends on whether you like beginnings or endings!

  10. Did you get to go inside the train? The vanishing point adds to the mystery in wondering what's on the other end.
