Berkshire , pours it on with a freight from history next to a Ford Model A pickup

recreating a scene from the good old days.

Steaming down memory lane is Pere Marquette 1225Owosso, Michigan

Southern 2-8-0 #610 at Rock Spring , Georgia ( Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum ..)

Heber City , Utah . Union Pacific 2-8-0 #618 and a 1953 Buick Super. This has to be the classic of classic photos! It defies time itself. When I saw this photo, I was transported back to those wonderful days when life was full of simple pleasures, back when we were satisfied with less and happy to walk instead of ride. This is February 6, 2007 when time and eternity intersect at this crossing. And to think that you and I, and others, once had a stage like this everyday for the greatest performance ever. Oh what the generation of today has missed.

Great Memories!

Thanks Jim F.
