I literally thought the same thing. Thought ok pops went too far and had to take a trip to the train station

Big Boy was close to where I live last year so me and a buddy went and saw it. Awesome! When I was a kid I rode trains a lot, walk a couple of blocks to the station here and rode to KC to Union Station where my aunt would pick me up. Go to the Doctor the next day, spend the night and Aunt Mae would put me on the train for home the next day. Did that every weekend for a year. 6 years old, conductor would watch over me. Think that could happen today?

Awesome Day!!! Good for You!!!
Man I remember those old trains and every town had a station and rode one also as a kid. Now they demolished 95 percent of them and I hate the way the world has changed.

That's what I was thinking. Then I went into "I can't believe he's posting that."


That is pretty cool. I don't think I've seen that one yet.
