Cool photo. Did you see what looks like a kid sticking his head out of the window of the cabin? Just taking in the spectacle.

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

Hmm...
Those tractors on the flat in the middle seem fit for another DKS masterpiece.  :D

It was pointed out on another forum that the PRR car also has plug doors.  Didn't realize they were that old.

Found out that the ferry is still around but is now just a barge.  Apparently the Wabash used this.
