This old and rusty historic locomotive, known as the “Three Spot” Locomotive thought to be built around 1915, sits off a road in Levy County, Florida, in a small area called Wayside Park. I photographed the sign near it, which contains the historical information. (see below)

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
