Tragedy

Early Sunday morning, Tweetsie Railroad was struck by lightening. The depot burned to the ground. In the depot is a restaurant, a gift shop, a first aid station, and the museum. So many old and wonderful things burned in that museum. The railroad is fine, as is everything except that building. That building also housed the only decent place to eat at that place.

Awe, how sad! They'll rebuild, and they'll have newer (slightly less cool) things for the museum..
