Well, TECHNICALLY I’ve ridden day trains a couple times, but just for a couple hours of hot, sweaty, dust in your face, rackety train. You?? LikeLike Reply I believe I did when I was 16 or so. Either a band trip or a French trip. To Chicago or New Orleans. Funny how the details are so fuzzy. I imagine a trip where I am wearing a flapper dress and their are equally fashionable people with me and someone is murdered and we are all trapped together and Whodunnit Murder-on-the-Orient-Express style. Doesn’t that sound like fun? 😀 And then there would also be ice-cold whisky vending machines. LikeLike As you say that, I’ve already created an entire scrapbook of the event in my mind. Does sound like fun! And hey, no tipping the bartender. LikeLiked by 1 person I would love to ride one of those trains. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Me, too! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Love the trains. Took a memorable ride from Seattle to Milwaukee back in 1997. Enjoyed everything but the hookers working the line between St Paul and Chicago. There was not an available toilet for 2 hours. Our car captain (my term, not theirs) took pity on me and walked me back to the employee only commode. I’ve kept her in my prayers every night since. That’s the only time I haven’t had a great experience traveling by train. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Oh, that’s quite a few miles! No toilet? Ugh. I hope no one had an emergency. I bet you appreciate that captain! Not so much the hookers… LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Exactly. And my husband takes great joy in reminding me about the hookers every time we ride a train. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person I guess they don’t get workers’ comp unless they work in a brothel? Why are you putting weird thoughts in my head today, Fannie? 😉 LikeLike LOL. Not responsible for your thought, wink, wink.
