    For all you railroad buffs, I found myself in the little Pennsylvania town of New Hope a couple of days ago. The kids heard the whistle off in the distance and it was off to the races. I thought you might like to see what we found!

    Engine 40 of the New Hope and Ivytown railroad:

  2. John, what a fun thing to find. A powerful and imposing sight! If you ever get a chance to take your family on one of these coal burners, it's a great experience from the past.

    Thanks, Miriam

    Actually, there was no way I was getting out of this train ride. This was the shot of the train engine getting in position to re-couple after the first half-hour. We took the full, 1-hour tour.

    Thanks again!
