Old Cars and Steam Locomotives

On July 16, 2016 the Olympia Camera Club went on a field trip that in included the Busek Auto Museum in Galvin, WA an the Chehalis Scenic Steam Train.  We spent some time photographing both the indoor and outdoor collections of Mr. Busek and then headed down to Chehalis to see their old steam locomotive.  One of our members rode the train with her family, but the rest of us leap-frogged ahead of the train to be able to photograph it at a variety of crossings.  It was really run wondering if we’d get to the next stop in time, and when the train turned around to return, we were able to catch it a few more times.

When we finished with the train we headed to a the historic Claquato Church and then on to a popular tree farm.  Our last stop was back near the train station to catch one more shot of the train as it left the station and crossed a trestle over the Newaukum River.

Here is a sampling of what I shot that day. For the complete gallery, click here.
