Dudley Went And Watched Trains For A Few Hours ...

this afternoon. He went up to Saginaw, TX and parked in the parking lot of the Chamber of Commerce. It is located in an old depot that was moved up here and restored. Dudley saw an Amtrak passenger train first and then a freight train came through. The freight train had six big army tanks on flat cars painted in desert colors. They were probably headed somewhere in the middle east. Dudley tried to take a photo as they rolled by but Dudley's camera locked up and it flashed a message the memory was full. What bad timing, by the time Dudley cleared it, the tanks were out of sight. Oh well, Dudley plans on going back. It is not all that far from where Dudley lives and it is a great place to spend a few hours.

That "memory full' message was probaly due to some super secret military program that was designed to prevent photos of military material!

There's something about watching trains roll by that make you want to hit the road. (I hear Johnny Cash signing in the background!)
When I see trains, I think of the song and video " A Thousand Miles From No Where" by Dwight Yoakum.
