I'm glad I got to take a steam engine ride back in
the day. There is nothing else quite like it.
My wife and I rode the Durango and Silverton and
had a wonderful time.

A road that I often drive on parallels some train tracks. The other day a freight train passed me going the opposite way. Ever since I was a little kid I always watched for the end of the train, and I did that day too. I realized that I still look for a caboose even though I know I won't see one.

There was always something neat about seeing a caboose at the end of a train. I miss them.  :(
