Green Bay National Transportation Museum

Real steam locomotive

Tongs used to pick up cross ties

You could sleep in a Pullman car.

In a Pullman car, these seats convert into

Bed - Doesn't look as comfortable as Treky's bed

Caboose - This was the last car in the train - the Conductor rode in it.

This is a "Cow Catcher"  It was used to push cows off the tracts.....Also moose in Alaska had to be pushed off the tracts with a cow catcher.

Tippy was not allowed in the Railroad Museum - He said that he wasn't interested anyway.  He stayed comfy in Treky - Note the exhaust fan port open on Treky's roof.

I have to show you this.  Diesel is cheaper than gasoline here in Wisconsin!  Can you believe it?

Next we are going to drive around the upper peninsula of Michigan along the shore of Lake Michigan and maybe down to Mackinaw City.  Then back to Madison, Wisconsin for an FMCA rally.

Ron, Tippy and Treky
