Trains and more Trains -- Glacier National Park

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Hardee-Team Realty

Amtrak #1

My husband loves trains.  This trip to Glacier National Park we stayed at a Hotel that had train tracks in the back, so we knew when trains were passing.  Then we would head out and "chase" the trains.  This Amtrak train had left the Izaak Walton Hotel about 30 minutes earlier.  I'm sure the views from the train are spectacular of the all the scenery around there.

BNSF Engines

These two Burlington Northern Sante Fe engines are passing under a pedestrian walkway, I think it is the one from the Izaak Walton Hotel.

train #3

Sorry, this one is a little blurry.  The Izaak Walton Hotel is converting this engine into living quarters.  It should be ready to rent by November.  You can contact the Hotel for rates.  They also have cabooses you can rent to sleep in.

Call me when you are ready to buy, sell or build in the Houston/Tomball area. Liz Flint 832-816-8066 sales_by_liz@hotmail.com, Century 21 Hardee-Team Realty and Hardee-TexStar Homes

It's always wonderful when you find a true passion in life, whethere it's trains, national parks or even what you do on a day to day basis. Thank you for sharing.

I hope you'll remember me if you learn of anyone moving to "The OC" and I will do the same!

Best regards.

Hey Russel, he is a true train person.  He loves to go on day trips and chase trains over different parts of Texas on his days off.  When we are on vacation we always stop if he can get a good train photo.  I tried to take more train photos on this trip so I can put together a train album for him for Christmas.  Thanks for your comment.

Hi Liz - I have a brother who would love those trains just as your husband does. I think I'd want to rent the caboose.

I love trains too, Liz. Really enjoy your photos. I'd love to visit here sometime! The Izaak Walton Hotel sounds like a neat place if they're converting old trains into sleeping accomodations!
