CHOO CHOO

~
Sounds through the air
bring comfort
heart vibrations 
~ Quite the departure from pics I normally post :)
I like trains. I grew up in an area of trains...not within "seeing"
distance...but within hearing distance.
The train whistle and the chug going down the tracks
was ALWAYS a comforting sound.
I still LOVE to hear it!

Oh, the Norfolk Southern. One of our favorite RR's. We have a favorite place in Gallitzin, Pa not far from Altoona, Pa where there is a B&B right beside the NS tracks. You can watch trains 24/7 if you want to( and if have enough money ). Have you checked out Gary's blog-"Steam Across the Trestle"? http://steamacrossthetrestle.blogspot.com/ It's all about trains. We're loyal train fans. Love your picture.

This is a terrific photo. It's nostalgia of the highest order. What a great pic! It will go over with lots of people. Trains are winners every time.

(My dad's first job was as a RR machinist back during steam engine days. He got laid off during the depression and always yearned to return to railroading. Had many RR friends over the years.)

Wanted to ask you to stop by my blog and cast a vote. Look under "Department of Decisions."

I just love train photos. I read somewhere that train buffs call this engine a "catfish" because of the white marks that resemble whiskers. The grandkids overheard me telling my husband that so now every time they see one they holler "there's a catfish"!
Thanks for mentioning the B&W blog!

I grew up being able to hear the trains every day and night and have always loved the sounds - I agree that they are comforting.

That train emerging from behind the trees is perfect in black and white! I clicked on link of the barn and enjoyed seeing the elongated side of it parallel to the mountains in the background --a perfect shot!
