Yesterday evening we had to pop down to the Amtrak Station to collect Middle J from the train. I always find meeting the train somewhat exciting! Often I dream about taking a trip on this particular train - The Capitol Limited - sounds very impressive doesn't it? Maybe the overnight train in a lovely sleeper cabin to the windy city, Chicago! Sadly, I haven't even been to Washington DC on it yet. :-S
Anyway, Mr VW and Little J, being the boys that they are, thought they would do a little experiment.
Hang on what's this on the tracks????A little copper coin???? Hold on is that a train I see coming????That is one mighty big train! Quite imposing to stand in front of both engines, you can feel the ground move.
What has happen to Mr. Lincoln????
Flat as a Pancake......
Please Note: Realistically and the more I think back about it, this is an EXTREMELY dangerous activity to partake in. I hang on to Little J for dear life until that train has gone, because you do quite simply stand right next to the tracks as it pulls in!
