This last Saturday was the annual meeting at the Flatonia Photo Pavillion, where rail fans from all over meet to take photos of trains, buy or sell train memorabilia and just come to visit with other train buffs.  This year the meeting was blessed by perfect weather, the sky was clear most of the time and the temperatures were in the 70's and 80's.  As you can see there is even a wheelchair ramp.  There are several picnic tables to sit at under the cover.   The whole pavillion has great views of the railroad tracks. Here is a video I took while in downtown Flatonia. http://youtu.be/ySdcmWyGrmw.  This is only my third attempt on you tube to upload a video.  It is shaky, but if you love trains, I think you will enjoy it.   100%

This freight train came through the big X (where two train tracks cross at 90 degree angles to form a big X) area at 10:12am. This 9434 up train came through at 10:13am.  The weather couldn't have been any better, sunny and cool in the morning.  A good time was had by all. There was a lull in the trains until 4:22pm, when up train 5552 came through. I love the color scheme on this picture with the bright orange caboose, the yellow engine and the tan tower.  This train came through at 4:26pm. This was the last train though at 6:18pm Another view of up train 4984.  The yellow train looks oran...
