Nah, never much cared about locomotives. I want a big, fast sailboat.

Well, sure, I want a big fast sailboat too, but a 4-8-4 Northern parked outside would be fine by me. The SP&S 700 went past our town a few years back as part of some tour, just behind the SP 4449, the old Daylight locomotive that ran between LA and San Francisco. Together, they made quite a sight.

Hey, knock it off. I've got work to do... :-)

Thanks for that Chuck. A great story, I bet he didn't come down for a week.

I've had a small list of dreams I wanted to accomplish before my end. One of them was to ride across America in a caboose.

I guess I picked the wrong end :)

Too late. But you can buy one one for your backyard and sit in the cupola and imagine the clickety-clack.
