I Am a Random Trivia Generator!

So today a friend comments that his Daughter is coming back from New York City from her Senior class trip via rail. I comment "So riding the Crescent eh? It will be late and here is where you can check the status of the trip."

My friend comments that I know way too much about obscure stuff. Not really. The Southern Railroad has made that run for a long time. 

Here is one engine that did it. 

 
  A long time ago! I need to do this run sometime.

  4. A friend of mine has a caboose. A bunch of folks rent an engine and go on trips around New England--New Hampshire mostly. It's a lot of fun! :-)

  7. When I have some spare money. Had to buy a new lawnmower this past payday, have to buy tires for the car on the next one.

  8. Real technology!
    If steam engines and gas light were good enough for Sherlock Holmes it's good enough for us!

  9. You can never know too much obscure stuff. It's much better than knowing about other things, such as today's "pop culture".
