I had the pleasure of photographing the 85th birthday celebration for a man named Walter, aboard a train!  Not just any train either, but the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroads’ historic Saint Lucie Sound.  This gorgeous, art deco train car made it’s way from Florida many years ago and was restored.  It was originally part of Henry Flagler’s fleet.  You know, the overseas railroad to Key West?  That Henry Flagler.  What a treat!  This was my second time photographing on this train car too.  I had spent time photographing the Conservancy for Cuyahoga Valley’s donor recognition train ride a couple years ago.  What a neat experience to come back again!

Here is a beautiful showcase of images from the event and aboard this historic treasure.  I hope you find yourself at home, riding along the rail with us.  There’s fun, quiet moments and wonderful family bonding, celebrating this man’s life.  He is a passionate train man of 85 years, and loved every minute of the journey.  Enjoy – all aboard!
