    Excursion Trains

    Tourism at work sites during the Construction Era is an endlessly fascinating topic, so for our final day of Panama Railroad posts we are featuring some wonderful images of excursion trains. The first is an official government photograph from 1910 and the second is an undated photo postcard showing a closer view of an excursion train loaded with passengers.   These images offer a perfect opportunity to share both descriptive information about the images and stories about your own experiences with railroad travel or even general tourism in the Canal Zone. We hope you have enjoyed this series of posts on the Panama Railroad! Celebrating 160 Years of the Panama Railroad (1855-2015)
