Engine Firefly on Orange and Alexandria RR ~ Civil War

There is something about trains that draws the attention of men and boys.  That is especially true when they cross deep gorges and canyons and seemingly float on rickety trellis and bridges.

Such was the case during the Civil War in America when the train engine “Firefly” stopped midway across a bridge for photographs accessorized by …..  men and boys, ( well if not boys, at least young men ).

About lineagekeeper

Family history research is a favored avenue of relaxation. It is a Sherlock-like activity that can continue almost anywhere at any time. By leveraging a lifetime involvement in technology, my research efforts have resulted in terabytes of ancestral data, earning me the moniker of Lineagekeeper. And yes - We are all related to Royalty.
