Happy National Train Day ...




... but ... it looks like Train Day is no more (due to budget cuts). From reading the announcement, it looks like 2015 may have been the last one, but the moose is already on the train and wearing his conductor's hat today, so .... am definitely not going to be the one to tell the moose to stop...

There's a Train Day on 5/14 so I've moved the images to then. They are too cute to get rid of.

So train delays. The moose will just have to wait a week.

Wow. And those two holidays are really close to each other -- "second Saturday of May" (train day) versus "closest Saturday to May 10th" (national train day). In fact, there were probably many years where they are on the same day !!

Yeah. I wonder why Amtrak made up a holiday rather than using the real one.

That would have entailed running to time
