TRAIN TIME: Nürnberg Verkehrsmuseum pt 2

Howz about we continue our look at those excellent trains from the Nürnberg Verkehrsmuseum  (Nuremburg, Germany, Transportation Museum). Today we're going to look at the fabulous engine and Salon Wagons of the Royal Bavarian Railway. These are absolutely gorgeous rolling works of art and I'm still taken aback at their beauty! I can remember being frustrated at the narrow confines of the museum making it difficult to get good shots. Also, I just didn't have a real good wide-angle lens which would have helped somewhat. Still it was a remarkable experience. Enjoy!
