I'm Back!

I'm back from vacation. We had a great time, although not a lot of railfanning; highlights were Mammoth Cave, the Blue Ridge Parkway, Skyline Drive, Harper's Ferry, and Gettysburg. But I'll have a railroad-related post or two soon.

As a preview, here is N&W 4-8-0 #1151, one of the "Lost Engines of Roanoke" recently rescued from a scrapyard at great trouble and expense.

It was nice to see again the house where I grew up.

Later, however, we were able to move to a bigger house in a better neighborhood after my father struck it rich. Black gold, Texas tea....

You went to Mammoth Cave and didn't tell me! I could have had you pick some stuff up from my parents' house!
