This week, Let's Talk Trains invites two different Railroad Museums to discuss their museums and their mission. The Georgia State Railroad museum will discuss their history and the future.

Ellen Peckham is artist in the most comprehensive sense of the word. She creates in every imaginable medium, and then some. A visit to her website: EllenPeckham.com, will provide ample evidence of why I am so truly honored to have her on my show. I'm going to ask her to read some of her poetry, and I know you'll share my awe in her work.

(144) Yanks Air Museum with Mr. Frank Wright
I spent a wonderful couple of hours with Mr. Frank Wright , Operations Manager of the Museum. We talked about a lot of different subjects and It was just a lot of Fun
please note there is SHORT Silent gap when phone connection quit
Although the collection began in 1972, Yanks’ was founded in 1982 by Mr. and Mrs. Nichols. The Nichols originally sought to acquire only three exceptional aircraft, the P-40 Warhawk, the Beech Staggerwing and the Stearman trainer. Purchased in 1973 the first aircraft of the collection was the Beech Staggerwing.
Even now, the Nichols’ still travel and collect, ever strengthening their resolve to restore and preserve American aircraft, their history and artifacts. The Nichols met and dealt with some of the most prominent icons in the aviation community to ensure the accuracy of each restoration. In the early years only true aviation enthusiasts were allowed into the museum, which was at that time more of a storage facility.
Now after more than four decades of public interest along with visitors from Japan, Australia, Germany, England and France, and of course America, the secret museum is no longer! The Yanks Air Museum preserves a collection of America’s aviation and aerospace legacy numbering more than 170 aircraft and has become one of the most prominent private aircraft collections in the world.
Aircraft from WW 1 up to the Most Modern F-18, F-16, and F-15 Fighters
