Baggage Cart

Located in Deadwood, South Dakota, this baggage cart has serviced it's last train.

I love the sights and sounds of the railroad. As a youngster, some of my favorite memories were formed by the every day sounds around the trains.

Waiting in the stations to see someone off on a journey, or to meet them as they came to visit, one conspicuously vibrant sound- the steel wheels of the baggage carts as they grated on the cobblestones of the station, formed some of my the fondest memories.

To today, I still can hear that sound, even though they sit empty, their wheels motionless, waiting for long forgotten trains that no longer polish the rails.
