( Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum)
Heber City, Utah. Union Pacific 2-8-0 #618 and a 1953 Buick
.This has to be
the classic of classic photos!
It defies time itself. When I saw this photo, I was
those wonderful days
when life was full of simple pleasures, back when we were
with less and happy
to walk instead of ride. This is February 6, 2011 when
eternity intersect at this
crossing. And to think that you and I, and others, once
had a stage
like this every day for
the greatest performance ever. Oh, what the generation
of today has
missed. Great Memories!

all look the same! This is when a car was a car!!!
