The Amtrak History Train at Ansonborough Field in downtown Charleston.

2011 was the 40th anniversary of Amtrak, and so they are taking a museum train around to various points all over the service area. It has been on the West Coast and many East Coast venues and only has a few stops left.  Well this weekend it is in Charleston. Kind of odd to see what looks like a passenger train in downtown Charleston – there hasn’t been passenger service here since since the Columbus Street station burned down in the 1940s.
