All aboard! We decided to spend another day with the Southern Prairie Railway in the fall to photograph and document the train robberies. We scheduled to only take one train but ended up taking both!
Did I mention we were riding the robbery trains? I know, you are probably thinking it was all planned out and we knew everything that was going to happen. To be honest, we knew we were going to get robbed (so did every other passenger) but we were supposed to be notified before the train was robbed so that we could be in the right spot for the best photographs. However due to the potential rain we were robbed sooner and quite unprepared. I may also note that the robbers did not know that were on the train taking photographs, so one of them even tried to rob me at gunpoint.
These were great trips and were glad to be a part of it. Our trips with SPR have always been so much fun even if we were not fully prepared. The photographs turned out great and we hope you all come out next year for the robberies or maybe another train?
Thank you SPR for letting us be a part of this even. We have enjoyed photographing for you!
