I’m not sure of location. I do know this would have been during our trip heading to Gnomedex 4.0. Looking at date on photos – I’m assuming I took shots as we were heading towards Lake Tahoe.
Unfortunately when Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus performed their final show on May 21, 2017 – their circus trains where no longer needed and retired. The rail cars were put up for sale and now have many different owners. Some were sold for scrap.
This was long before I had a video camera and camera used for photos was not highend. Quality wasn’t helped by fact that we were traveling at highway speed.
Photos taken October 6th 2004
What’s it like on the Ringling Bros. train?
