Trains of a Time Past
Well, steam engines are from a time not that far past. I can still remember them. When I was young, I lived near a place that had multiple train tracks that served the wharves along the Mississippi River in New Orleans. The trains passed just over two blocks from my house, and from the sidewalk in front we had an unobstructed view. How I wish I had photographs of what I saw, and on a regular basis. Train cars would load from the wharves, and then be moved into the correct position as trains were made up on several other tracks. And steam engines were the norm for trains passing through.
