Trains....

I like trains. I enjoyed HO scale trains when I was a kid. In 1984 I took the Southwest Chief from Chicago to Los Angeles and back. It was a fun way to travel and see the country. There are three more trains I would like to ride some day - my "bucket list" of trains.

The Rocky Mountaineer - Across Canada -

The Blue Train - Across South Africa -

The Ghan - Across the middle of Australia -

I liked sharing meals with people I did not know, watching the scenery roll by, reading while traveling at eighty miles an hour and the whole idea of traveling in a relaxed fashion.
