Train's On Time!
Cold Day, Hot Night.
Riding with the Kids
The train pulled out of DC right on time and was less than an hour late at
Cincinnati. That's pretty good as far as I know. My car was filled with
high schoolers who took a short cut in Ashland.
It was a good day to stay inside and the Smithsonian has plenty of places
where doing that is more than worthwhile. I picked the National Museum of
American History. I spent the evening watching Willie Nile and company
tearing it up from ten feet away.
Not only did the train arrive this time, it was on schedule and it
remained so all the way the Washington. I even had a window seat all the
way and captured lots of underexposed, out of focus, and blurred images.
In case anyone is wondering whether I'm a pessimist or optimist, this
should resolve the question. In 2011 I booked passage on a train to
attend a couple of concerts in Washington, DC. The train was canceled a
couple of days before the scheduled departure. In 2014 I did it again and
the train was over four hours late which played havoc with my DC arrival
plans. A few days ago I purchased yet another train ticket to DC. This
time it is to see Willie Nile at the Hamilton. Wish me luck.
