a convergence of tea time thoughts for ladies


And they just keep coming by

This is my train collection.  I hope you enjoy them as  I include more from time to time.


Below: Here’s a collage of some of my favorite train photos I took from my backyard in the last  year.

Below photo:  Here’s an Amtak train just pulling up in the Seattle train station on King street.  The dining car is expensive, but hits the spot if you board the train real hungry!

Don’t know what these brown cars carry , but when they come by there’s always a string of them.

I saw another photo online of this train and I think it said “Union Pacific” on it at one time.  I’ve only seen this train once before come by.  Here are two photos of the train.
