Remarks & Notes 
Circling 300 years of Americana. The Greenfield Village Shuttle Train passes the eye-catching, red cider mill in the Working Farm District, as she heads for Firestone Station on the last trip of the day.

Finding pretty places to photograph the Greenfield Village's Weiser Railroad is not particularly difficult. In fact, it's a bit like shooting fish in a barrel. The train circles the village complex on a 3-mile route from the time the park opens at 9:30 AM until close at 5PM. It makes a complete circuit about every 30 minutes. Just about anytime of day, you can find a spot where the light is right and if you hoof it, you can get about 2 spots per trip. There are loads of historic buildings, grade crossings with Model Ts, and even woodland spots on the back 40. In between shots, there are a ton of interesting venues to explore, from Thomas Edison's Laboratories, to a working power station, to a railroad roundhouse, to working glass and pottery shops. Don't think you're going to see this place in a day. I spent 4 days there in 2018 and I bought the one-year membership, because I'm not done exploring the place just yet! Henry Ford was more than just the guy who made America mobile. He was also a visionary who recognized the need to preserve the history of American innovation and bring it all together in one place.
