Trains and train stations are very fascinating, so I enjoy your pictures. Some stations have been converted to malls and hotels (St. Louis, for example), and the setting is amazing.

We loved our train excursion in Alaska.... am sure we'd love this -- beautiful station and the perfect blue sky and fluffy clouds are a lovely bonus.

I like the second picture the best, it is very pretty. I used to live quite near Mananas.

Linda said...

Great looking skies!
The historic core of Manassas is a neat place. Wish it weren't surrounded by sprawl!

Karen said...

Great views, I like the first one, it's moody!

I really, really like the ambiance in these photos. Not to mention the deep blue in the sky...but your perspective and subject of the tracks and station just gives a great atmosphere Denise.

I like the long shot of the rails best! Nice skies!

Sandra said...

stunning skies and i love old railroad stations.. my dad was born in Manassas but Manassas Georgia, not VA... his house was about 30 feet from the railroad tracks, don't know if wrong or right side LOL...

The first time I saw this station,, probably about 1957, parts of Virginia including this station, looked pretty much like they had in the nineteenth century. I recently uncovered records showing one of my ancestors fought at Second Manassas. Love trains, love history. Thanks for sharing!

Have been there...it has such a rich history! Nice photos, Denise! My hubby finally watched the D-Day special. I was very much moved (AGAIN!) as was he. I pointed you out, and Russell said "They are leaving her to get the luggage!" We also both commented on how lucid and young-seeming Gully is! You never told me if you saw the little boy on the beach holding the flag and saluting back toward the horizon while you were there.
