BPP! (Bonus Pelican Photo!)

After the Daily Daughter the Younger bought me dinner tonight (big paycheck!) we took a drive down by Giant Springs State Park.  There, sitting on the same log as all the other pelicans in recent memory, was a single pelican.  I sent the Daily Daughter out to take a snap shot.  She returned with three […]

Day 207: On the other side of the Union Station…

The opposite end of the Union Station has a very nice collection of locomotives and rolling stock  (railroad cars). First is the X-26, a jet engined locomotive made in 1960.  The jet turbine (used to create electricity instead of a diesel engine) powered locomotive was able to pull 735 loaded cars…a train seven miles long!
