Ride the Train – The Orange Blossom Cannonball

 

The family and I took a drive to Tavares, Florida recently to ride a real, wood fired, steam locomotive known as the Orange Blossom Cannonball.

The folks that run the Cannonball are in the process of rebuilding the rail bed and constructing a new station modeled after rail depots of old.

Overall, the experience was a fun, family day. Here are a few snaps and a video of the train in action.
