The Voice of Youth

Well, after a twelve-hour night on a switch engine and delivering a Norfolk Southern coal train, seeing another train wasn’t high on my list. I came home and slept an hour, by then the kids were getting stir crazy so I dropped my son off at the pool. Luckily, two of my daughters decided to ride to Danville for the day with me. I knew that Southern steam locomotive 630 was around, but already left for Tennessee and had no idea what time it’d be back. We drove around for a while and decided to wait at Junction City, Kentucky in hopes of seeing her.

After sitting almost an hour, we left to eat and I offered to take them elsewhere for something more along the lines of their interests. My youngest daughter talked me into hanging around Junction City long after I knew the shadows would encroach upon my picture. So, I stayed. When 630 came by us really “feeding ‘em rail” as we say, I turned around and Rae said, “Now Daddy, that was awesome. You could feel that train go by.” You know, that kid always was hard to win an argument with.
