I had a little more time to sightsee yesterday. Just up the road from my hotel is The Durham Museum. Even if you’re not a train and railroad buff, which I’m not, the museum still proves interesting. And it’s not just an homage to Omaha’s part in the great interconnectedness of 19th and 20th century America, but also to trains in general.
I attempted a selfie, posing as an interested train passenger in the 1920s cart. I was waiting for the part where I would exit the train and find myself back in time, but it never happened…No Twilight Zone action for me I guess.
The museum also had a really cool model train setup. Here’s a short video I captured. What really surprised me is how the narration of the voice nearly matched everything I recorded. I didn’t realize that until I watched it after the fact.
So concludes my tour of Omaha. It was fruitful and frustrating all wrapped into one, kind of like cookies with raisins instead of chocolate chips. This time tomorrow, I expect to be home again. Looking forward to it!
