I guess I am down to railfanning from my bed. This morning I decided to sleep in. it's saturday. i'm dead asleep when I wake up because of a strange sound. A train is hitting the crossings a couple blocks away and it's blowing it's grade crossing warning. Only the horn is all wrong, or right as the case may be, it's full of overtones and it drags out like a wail. So I was lying in bed thinking to myself holy crap what is that, when it dawned on me that someone had posted a thread about the Frontier Days train rolling south on the joint line. I must assume today was the day the UP passenger train rolled south. what a sound. It took me back to.... errr... sometime before I was born. LOL too cool. Actually cool doesn't describe the sound. Beautiful lonely Majestic, maybe those words hint at it. I feel lucky to have heard it. ok so I seem to be on the wrong day fro the frontierdays train. i'm about a month late according to what I found online. Could a steam engine be sitting in Burnham yard today? what did I hear?
