Detail of old Union Pacific Railroad Steam Engine 119 which met with Southern Pacific Engine Jupiter on May 10, 1869 at Promontory, Utah, USA to mark the historic joining of railroad tracks which stretched approximately 3000 miles from the Atlantic Ocean on the East to the Pacific Ocean on the West.

3000 miles is a long ride !

One of my favorite subjects - and 'treated' nicely !

Such a pleasure to be able to return to blogland and get (somewhat) caught up - now that loading blogs is timed in seconds rather than parts of hours. Checked out a number of your recent posts - I'll look forward to your Phun Phridays if you decide to do that again, and wish Chad a belated happy birthday !

And a rather belated Happy New Year to you too.
