Today is Train Day

Stream TrainI remember how much my father loved trains. He even had records that he would play with the sound of train whistles. My uncle Art also had a train scene he would setup every year under the Christmas Tree. It had a whole town. We would sit and watch the trains go around and he could even off load logs from cars. When I grew up I was commuting into San Francisco on the train. My latest adventure on the train was to see a SF Giants baseball game. Oh have you ever been to Roaring Camp in Felton, CA to ride the steam train? Fun, Fun, Fun.

Quote on Trains:

“People who haven’t ridden in trains don’t know what they’re missing. It’s not like an airplane. You get to see the countryside, the beautiful country we live in. Unfortunately, our railroads have dwindled in passenger traffic.”- Ken Kelly

Puns on Trains:

Those who steal trains must have a loco-motive.

On the old trains the engineer had a lot of esteem.
