Tis the Holiday season...and the day after Thanksgiving marks the start of the annual tradition known as the Christmas (for all us non-pc types) or Holiday Trains. We saw two in the Scranton PA area yesterday. Steamtown used the 3254 to Moscow (so Putin could tell Santa he wants Poland and Eastern Europe for Christmas...J/K)..While the CP Holiday Train was on display in Scranton, then headed west to Binghamton, NY.

Good friends, good trains, cold weather, cheaper gas ...what more can we ask for this season of remembrances???

so, let me be the first to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas!!!!
