Thanks to All who came Aboard!

Northeast Regional
That’s my train, the Northeast Regional crossing the CT River about 6:00 am

Yesterday was National Train Day. I mentioned in my post, that several of my writing friends were indulging my obsession with trains by joining me with posts on their blogs. I shared an early post by Sharukh and an early post by Mary, Mary added a second post about a train station brew pub (beer fountain anyone?) and then Mary cajoled Joanne into joining us with a story about Canadian trains and some wonderful photos of trains in the snow.

During the day, and after I was tucked in for the night, a few more friends joined as they had promised they would. I promised that I would mention their posts, so here we go. Sharukh, a bona fide train nut and travel enthusiast, brought us a post about five grand luxury trains in India. Kate Powell, a talented artist who uses paint instead of a camera shared her impression for the train station in Portland. Cheryl, who frequently shares stories from dream lands here on our planet and those that only exist in her creative mind, along with some inspiring photography, great food and behind-the-bar chatter(1), shared her dream train ride with us, just under the wire.

Unexpected but certainly welcome, National Train Day went international when a blogger/photographer in England joined David (see yesterday’s first comment) to represent the U.K.

I want to thank everyone who participated, and I encourage you to read these folks. I follow them regularly, and they never disappoint.

  1. I love trains. And it’s a good thing too, because there’s a lot of hub-bub going on here in FL with them now. I’ve got to send this post to Penny Vanderbilt!
