Good evening, three-rail nerds! My family and I have taken a splendiferous vacation here in Tampa, Florida. We hit numerous attractions from Busch Gardens to the Tampa Zoo, and what trip would be complete without trains, of course? First off, we arrived in Tampa by plane and were driving to The Florida Aquarium (our first stop), when I caught some hopper cars on my phone.
Our next stop on Thursday was Busch Gardens, a theme park with dozens of zoo animals, roller coasters, and a park train that loops around an area of the park, giving an insight of the park's animals to the public. No, the train isn't some cheap, 1880's-looking, propane powered 4-2-4-type replica. It's a splendiferous European-African looking iron mare built by Crown Metal Products pulling five or six green coaches.
