SANTA FE #3751



The Santa Fe Northern type steam engine number 3751

It’s going to be a busy two weeks.  Pride here in San Diego starts tomorrow.  Next week, beginning Thursday we have Comic Con.  In the middle is the LA train fest.

We are going to skip Pride.  Though we were asked by the ACS, we did it for a great number of years with the Quilt.  Enough.  It’s going to be hot in the park, and we are going far, far away where the heat will be just as bad.  We are off on Amtrak to the LA Union Station…one of my favorite architectural places to enjoy Train Fest 2017. 

The operating 1927 engine #3751 will be there as will a number of restored cars.  Here’s a few links to share our excitement with you.

  • Himself:  Working hard till Friday.  Next week only three days hard labor.  Carpets done next Wednesday.  We haven’t heard from the Volunteer folks at CC yet.

  • Herself:  Looking forward to Saturday, and next week I will be at work when the carpets are cleaned.  G says I am being paranoid and that the volunteer staff at CC hasn’t forgotten us tho others have had their invites.  Remember we forgot to go to the Early volunteer meeting.

  • Reading:  The bio of Queen E2 as a modern Monarch.  Well written so far.

  • Gratitude’s:  That the days have been cooler.
