Well today was a cold one here in Scranton, stayed around the house until 5:00PM an then Michelle and I jumped in the truck and headed to the railroad yards at Sreamtown to see the CP Rail Holiday Train, which is touring the Northeast US and Canada wherever CP Rail runs.They have decorated the train and they are collecting Food and Toys for the Needy. What a great way again to teach a youngster it is better to give than receive.
Here are some pictures, I want my Canadian friends to know they can be very proud of this train and what they are doing to help the poor at this holiday season.
It was about 20 degrees and starting to snow so we headed into the Mall because walking the length of a passenger train makes a girl and her Grandpa hungry.
How about a picture with Santa and his Elf.
This is the Scranton Times Radio Tower decorated for the holidays.
My old friend DL 3642, from the derailment pictures, in front, is back in service waiting to pull a freight.
Did I mention Michelle got to warm up and play in the playland at the Mall before we went home. Playing is pretty tough so she had to have a big blue Slurpee Ice ( the kind that turns your tongue blue) on the way home. All in all a good night and I know one girl who was tired out when we got home.
Well that’s about it for Saturday, this post is late going out anyway. Be Safe Out There, Sam & Donna……
