Last year, I made a promise to many of my regular readers. I agreed to remind them before National Train Day, so they could organize their thoughts, photos and write their posts.
It seems that I was already in error, as AMTRAK had cancelled National Train Day last March, in order to save some of the piddly amount of money Congress gives them. That’s why there weren’t any activities in New Haven’s Union Station last year. Still, when I searched on National Train Day 2017, I found lots of events as well as an event page on Facebook.
“National Train Day is dead – Long live National Train Day!”
Be careful all you folks in America. As in all prior years, for posting purposes, National Train Day (Saturday, May 13th) falls dangerously close to Mother’s Day. If you’re like me, and you only post once on the weekend, you have to choose between trains and mom.
Perhaps my readers will permit me an exception on this one Sunday. I am torn between to ideas for Train Day, but none of the photos in the gallery will be reused.
The gallery includes a variety of train photos from my Pinterest board. I have almost 600 photos pinned, feel free to connect with me if you need some. Note: none of these are my photos. Click on any one to start a slideshow, and get a better view of the captions.
