Oh well, ya gotta play the hand that your dealt with. Today was the fog but after the 100 degree heat last week it sure felt good. Busy train days in the Pass. All photos were at the Swarthout Canyon area.

Well said, Don. I've been preaching that same sort of gospel for quite some time. When you're young you smugly think you have all the time in the world. But when you get "up there" you realize you have only have a finite number of times left to go out there and have fun with this hobby. And the scary part is every time you do go out there that "finite" number decreases by 1. So you HAVE do the best you can with what you have to work with (my take) and your words: "Ya gotta play the hand that you're dealt with

Absolutely right...

You got that right Lance.  I'd never admit it to PhotoBob but I'm 80 so I'm raising hell while I still can.

AWWWRIGHT, all youse wize guys... I've got my abacas (with a fresh battery) and ALL you guys appear to have higher age numbers than me. BUT, (modest cough) I actually have you all beat because I'm actually 64 going on 84! And my math is perfect. Think about it: Hasn't EVERY railfan you ever listened to told everybody they were born 20 years TOO LATE??!! (hee hee hee)
