My hubby (John) called late this morning and asked if I wanted to 'ride' on a train! He had talked to the guy who was presenting the program and we were able to get on and ride in the 'bubble' car of this passenger train.
Dave was easy to listen to and cheery, while delivering the message about keeping EVERYBODY safe around railroad tracks.
These are pictures of things as we traveled through Ames (IA) this afternoon.
This is new housing buildings for Iowa State University. Certainly a step up from the old metal huts that used to house married students!
That's the passenger train we rode on today.
This is just two trains meeting east of Ames. (They are not on the same track.)
