Day 5

Today we drove from Asheville, NC to Lexington, NC by way of Old Fort and Taylorsville.

This is the train depot in Old Fort, NC. As a child Nancy rode the train from Asheville to this depot. It wasn't this color back them. Yuck.

This is a CSX switching job at Clinchfield, NC. There was a bridge back to the left of this shot that still has the Clinchfield RR lettering on it.

Back in Statesville again we found the Alexander RR #7 switching cars.

Upon arriving in Lexington we visited the Richard Childress winery. Very nice place and were were pleasantly surprised at the very good quality of the wine. Though we didn't take the tour, we did do the wine tasting and the people were very nice and helpful. It's worth the stop.

Part of the Childress vinyards.

One of Lexington NC's big things is pork barbecue. You may have heard of the Chicago cows. Well, Lexington has the pigs. I think there were about 30 of them decorated all over downtown. This is Piggy-Atrician.
