Amtrak photos

Recommended Posts

Here are some of my photos. This was train 8 at Shelby, MT and Dunkirk, MT, same day. I tend to use the last one as my profile picture on other platforms.post-9407-0-77930000-1531724108_thumb.jpgpost-9407-0-61036800-1531724119_thumb.jpgpost-9407-0-32221700-1531724128_thumb.jpg

OMG 642!! :lol:

Is there any significance of the number "42" in regard to veterans, or is it just a coincidence that the two (powered) veterans units are 42 and 642?

I honestly have no idea.

Yeah. You’re missing the photo of 642 pulling into New Rochelle.

I see it now. The lights sort of cover the numbers (the lights look "bright" on my phone).

It's funny, I usually identify the special livery locomotives by the livery, rather than the number.

Veterans have seen a lot of life, the universe, and everything.

Yes, but what's the connection between that and the number 42?

It’s a reference to “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” by Douglas Adams.

 

I hereby assign it as summer reading. It’s a classic.

You haven't read Hitchhikers Guide? You have not yet lived.

Then what the heck have I been doing the past 60+ years? :o

You haven't noticed the gaping void in your soul where Douglas Adams ought to be?
