I saw Hickory Creek come through Riverdale this afternoon. I need to be more proactive and get a ticket to ride in it next time!

Messrs. Train 09 and Vogel, glad you were able to get out yesterday, for the weather today is to be "the pits".

Mr. Vogel's immediate posting had me recollecting a photo essay by Robert Frank that appeared in a 1955 issue of Fortune magazine:

Here are some of the photos; Mr. Google can find more:

While boarding NER 156 in WAS on Sunday 11/12 I saw Moonlight Dome against the bumper of our track. It looked like it was hooked up to the train but perhaps it wasn't. At the time I anticipated an extended stay in Philadelphia for it to be switched off but we were in and out of 30th Street very quickly. I guess it was just hanging out in the station.

MOONLIGHT DOME arrived from Roanoke on train 156, laid over, and returned to Roanoke on train 145.
