Ridin' the J611

Every now and then even a hard ass like myself has to take a break from all of the deep state political b.s. going on in the country, home and the job. Being a retired Railway Carman, of course railroad in all forms is a part of my lifeblood. I love riding the rails and do so when I can. I've ridden rails from Conway N.H to Lauterbrunnen, CH. I could do this forever.

About a month ago I read in one of my railroad rags that the Norfolk and Western J611, the last remaining one in its class, was coming from Va to the Strasburg Railroad, in Pa. For most railroad fans this is a dream ride , as it's only available to ride infrequently at best. At 65, I'd probably never have another chance to ride again.

So I booked 2 seats for the wife and I and on Sunday, 9/29 we drove to Strasburg Pa.

We boarded at 12:30 and returned about an hour and a half later. Fantastic event, literally thousands of people(unfortunately also loaded with liberal douche bags from Joysey, whose voice and inflection I find IRRITATING!) with people clogging every railroad crossing with cameras, drones and people standing on the roofs of their trucks and cars. Even the NJ douches' couldn't ruin the event for us!!

Alas, if this joy could only last.

Back home today to reality and back to the same, lying, disgusting, despicable,demented, socialist liberal bastards  bent on destroying this country. Impeachment is the trip line for what will follow if these deep state actors dare to attempt to remove our duly elected President, either by illegal political means or by force. God save this country if they try the latter! I have no doubt that armed Patriots will rise up, to cleanse this Great Nation of this cancerous filth. One side of me, hates to see this happen, the other side says it's necessary to save our Great Country.

A streamliner. Possibly the most beautiful steam locomotive ever made.

The old passenger trains are neat, but airplanes are faster.

Now, a slow moving freight train loaded down with American grain, oil, automobiles, farm machinery, ortrailers full of who knows what, THAT is a sublime sight.
