I had a chance to ride the Operation Lafesaver today from Indianapolis to Ansonia, Ohio and back. This is a view from the theater car. Great way to ride a train!

We could watch the front of the train via TV and our speed on the overhead instruments. Also the inside/outside temps and the air pressure.

The rear of our 9 car train. It was begining to rain as we got home. It was a great trip. By the way, several drivers were stopped for beating the train.

The train is now in Cincinnati enroute to JAX via Louisville, Nashville and Atlanta. What did you think of the chow SFDan? Good stuff! :-)

Here's an inspection trip with one of the guys pointing out the then new connection at Sidney, Ohio. Obviously on the theater car "Georgia".

I am an Operation Lifesaver presenter and was asked to attend. Law enforcement folks, town officials and other gov. types I think.
