    What a great day. Five trainboard members or guests met me at the Danbury Railway Museum this morning. The weather was warm and the friendship warmer. Here is the group.

    I will leave most of the comments to them. I will just say it was a great pleasure hosting them for the day.

    Peirce,
    Thanks both for posting that photo and taking time out to spend with us. I had a great time. You are very knowledgeable and I learned quite a few things and had fun!

    I look forward to doing it again in the future as well as posting some of the pics when I get them developed. I too would like to invite anyone on this board to come to this museum. I would be happy to come along to meet you!

    Here is one pic that came out with my digital:

    Here are some of Johnny's shots from the Trucking Museum. I will let him explain them, as he is more knowledgeable in trucks than I:

    Thanks Russ!

    Those trucks were clean enough to eat off of them!

    The Kenworth is from the early 70's.
    The Mack B tractor is from '63.
    The Mack B pumper is as old as I am, a 1957! YAH!!!!!!!!!
    The Diamond Rio I believe was from the early 70's also.
    And the Plymouth tractor I bet is pretty rare and I do believe it was a '48!

    There were more stunning trucks there also.
    I hope members here can get there someday!

    It sure makes the imagination run wild with WHITE LINE FEVER!

    I'll bet you can really "floor it" in that carpet car!

    I'm not "lying like a rug " either!

    Takes you the outer fringes! LOL!
