trains–trains

Continuing with the train theme this week, here are 2 more photos from Sunday’s run in. What’s not to love? The worn metal. The distressed letterforms. The graffiti. I just love the industrial feel of the letterforms. The Simplot logo reminds me a lot of the Adidas logo circa 1984.

The CCR logo is so simple and so perfect. It stands for Corinth & Counce Railroad. Thanks to Wikipedia, I found out that The Corinth and Counce Railroad was a Class III railroad operating freight service between Mississippi and Tennessee. The line was built in 1959, expanded in 1974 and sold in 1991 to a new owner who changed the railroad’s name. Today, some of the Corinth and Counce’s trackage is operated by the Kansas City Southern Railway.

Am I the only train lover out there?
