Collection from the moments
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.
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?
Amtrak Cascades train #513 arriving in Bellingham on January 27, 2017.
Am I missing something? That's 90208.
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).
Those LED's are really bright it's not you.
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.
Thanks. I'm looking it up.
You haven't read Hitchhikers Guide? You have not yet lived.
Then what the heck have I been doing the past 60+ years?
You haven't noticed the gaping void in your soul where Douglas Adams ought to be?
