Here’s a quick note to let you know that I made it home alright. The last three days were a lot of fun. I’ll post more and add some photos after I’ve gotten some sleep.
I met my father and brother Ryan in Cass, West Virginia. Dad is a bit of a train nut, and has a small railroad inspection vehicle that is able to ride the rails. There’s a group of people who have these and rent time on various railroads to go for rides. The park service operates a scenic railroad in Cass with steam locomotives, and we were able to go for a ride on one of them as well. It’s a beautiful part of the country, and it was great to hang out with Dad and Ryan for a couple of days. We stayed in a house that the park service rents out. Cass was a company town, and the houses were built for the employees.
