Todays event

Todays excitement centers around the wait for the UPS mans arrival. As I said yesterday, even though there is an Amazon distribution center right here in town, My order is coming from Ontario California.  What I'm waiting for is a new book.

So many trains, so little time.

Once it arrives I can then check off the ones I've ridden and make a list of the ones I still need to see. 

Yesterday it stayed overcast all day and we even had a few sprinkles of rain. Nothing that could be measured, but the drops could be felt by those of us that didn't have sense enough to come out of the rain. I personally felt 5 drops. Today the sun is back with us and the temperature is again climbing towards triple digits.

Todays plan is to read my new book when it arrives and watch the ballgame this evening, another great day of enjoying the good life.

    1. No Dee, I have never wanted to commercialize my site. It's done purely for fun.

    1. I give you a review of the book when I'm done with it. You might need to get a copy too.

  3. Oh golly, wait till Sandie sees that book. It will be on her Christmas list for sure.

    Looking forward to reading about how many of the 480 you have rode, seen or just enjoyed passing by.

  6. I stayed for quite a while in Chama NM in 2010, home of the Cumbres de Toltec. We used to stop over night for years, but I spent quite a bit of time--drove up to Antonito CO where the train travels. Most of the people in the campground I stayed in were "Friends of the Railroad", a volunteer group who works it every years.

    I'm afraid of heights so Rich and my daughter took the Ironhorse from Silverton to Ouray. I have quite a few railroad books--there's an interesting story about Gene Autry and a car connected to the Cumbres. Hope you enjoy your book and get to see the railroads in it.

    1. I rode the Cumbres and Toltec earlier in the year. Quite a ride. I've found that there are a lot of railroads yet to be ridden. The book is very enjoyable.
