Orange Empire Railway Museum, Perris, CA

A few weeks ago, some friends of mine, from the [b] School, took a day trip that included the Orange Empire Railway Museum, in Perris, CA. I wasn’t able to go, that day, so when my wife suggested that we “take a little ride”, last Sunday, AND “allowed’ me to pick the destination, I jumped at the chance. My wife is not a photographer, so when a trip, with me, to the grocery store, takes an hour, because of all the things I “need” to photograph, along the way, it is significant when she suggests a day trip.

“The Orange Empire Railway Museum’s purpose is to preserve and display artifacts and documents of the rail transportation industry in order to educate the public on the technology, history and impact of the rail transportation industry in the West and more specifically Southern California.”

One of the coolest things about the OERM is that it is spread over many acres, and visitors can just roam around, looking at trains, street cars, some buses and other equipment. It’s all free, but they also have trains rides, for a small fee.

I don’t really know much about trains. Most of my early ancestors, in the US, worked in coal mines or as farmers, but a couple did work on street cars, and trains — besides, I’m a ‘boy’, so I like trains. 🙂

A few weeks ago, I posted some images from a day trip to Union Station, in Los Angeles. I talked a little about my new interest in HDR — except that it is fake HDR — post production processing on single images using Photoshop. I agree, it isn’t true HDR, but I sort of like the extra saturation that I get, and these are for me — not for a client, so I do what I want. 🙂
