Photo Safari #112 - Choo Choo!

Blog Blog

Thursday, Dec 12 2013 by

Welcome back. It’s time to do another Photo Safari. We’ve done trains before but this time we’re going to include infrastructure. Your mission is to find historic trains, rail cars, train stations, tunnels, and other rail related stuff in Street View. Feel free to dip into museums and Google business imagery for photos, paintings, murals, etc. No modern trains though. Currently used infrastructure is fine if it has some history to it (lets say >50 years).

Please add a More Info link to explain the historic significance. Post your finds to Street View – Safari Submission and another category for credit. The safari will end at 0700 UTC on December 18.

Good luck and happy hunting!
