OK, now about my Grandpa’s retirement day. It was kind of sad since he loved his job as an engineer. This first picture is of him walking back from the train yard and turn table where they turned the engines around. It is in a small town called Phillipston and the river you see on the right is the Allegheny River.
This next picture is of him standing beside his engine:
the river ur talking about ,,,the Llano? I live in Llano, deer capital of Tx,,,and we had the swarm coming in yesterday. Have deer a few feet behind my house, just up a hill from the river. Hope theyre hiding up here today. lol when theres lots of rain, takes 24 hours for the river rise to get here from Junction.ReplyDelete
Most people get close, they have to come thru here to pick up some of COOPERS BBQ, r INMANS TURKEY SAUSAGE. so if u havent, try it some time, then ull be hooked. lol
Great pictures!! Did you scan the pictures or the negatives? Well done, you do realize the train pictures are important HISTORY?ReplyDelete
Trouble, Yes, I bet you get a lot hunters coming to your area. And, no, I haven't had any of that BBQ or sausage. Will have to try it sometime. I have high blood pressure and try not to eat salty food, but once in awhile probably wouldn't hurt.ReplyDelete
Ben, Thanks for the complament. I scanned the pictures from old photo prints. Have others I want to scan but can't seem to lay my hands on them. I will keep looking.
I really like the older pictures, as they show a LOT of history...especially in the dress and the surroundings!ReplyDelete
Thanks for sharing these!
HJ, thanks for stopping by. Like I told Ben, if and when I find some more interesting old pictures I will scan them and put them on.ReplyDelete
