Carolinian at Raleigh

Back in June 1996 the National Railway Historical Society held its annual convention in Charlotte, North Carolina.

One of the excursions planned for the convention was a rare mileage trip on CSX toward the coast. But it fell through due in part to CSX opposition.

That left me with a day open for which there might have been a scheduled alternative activity, but I don’t recall.

Instead, I created my own excursion riding Amtrak’s Carolinian to and from Rocky Mount, North Carolina.

There was enough time at Raleigh to get off the train and make a few photographs, including this one.

Amtrak has since moved to another station in North Carolina’s capitol city.
