That's awesome! For some reason I always thought the circus moved by tractor-trailer?

You had a ring side seat for free to see this part of the circus....great! Ron

So cool! I've never seen a circus or circus train. Well I did now. I also thought they were carried by trucks.

Ringling has two trains used to tour the west/east coasts each year; the "Blue" and "Red" Units which run with 50+ cars each. The Gold unit, which is smaller in size, uses trucks. Everything is based out of Florida, and both trains come through the area I live in on their way in/out of the Southeast. And they do a good job of turning the heads of motorists stopped at crossings!

There is a lot more than the eyes see in putting on a circus. Thanks for the perspective.
