From New York to Chicago

Here are two pictures of Ava and me on an Amtrak train from New York to Chicago. My second trip on the rails, her first, and we’re having a blast. As a bonus for me, there are all kinds of characters on board. Two novels worth in the waiting.

Excellent photos. A train is a rolling adventure. Love the feel of its movement and the passing landscape. Great to share with someone.

So adorable! Don't you just love people watching?

Extraordinary experience, Ron. Someone SHOULD pay me to ride trains and write stories. I could spend twenty years doing it.

Steve/Randy, Great moment for both of us.

Chudney, Absolutely! Like I told Ron I could ride trains and write about travelers. Endless supply of tales.

She's a real little poppet. I'd love to go that train.

Took the family to Disneyland 2 yrs. ago via Amtrak. We stopped at the historic Union Station, which, I'm reliably told, still looks pretty much like it did in the 30's and 40's. And you're absolutely right, it was characters all the way . . .

Lots of fun, Dave.

Union Station! Yeah. Spend a day there with a keyboard and a camera, Garn.

Happy trails, David.

I love trains. There is nothing quite like them. Wish we could travel by train more often in the midwest.
