Hogan, I've got my eye on you!
Author: santafe199

As I shot this train on its decent down Harvey County’s Walton Mountain I couldn’t help but think of the inept Colonel Klink (& his monocle) from the 1965 smash-hit TV series “Hogan’s Heroes”. Near as I can figger (with a bit of help our good man MILW_E70), the westbound grade is almost .08%. On my very first SFe pay trip on the road, my 314 train stalled out here after losing one of the two 6300 Class U-23-Bs we had for power.

When I lived in SoCal - My sisters figure skated, I played ice hockey . . . point of the matter is . . . his daughter figure skated at the same ice rinks we did. In addition, Dean Martin's daughter ice skated as well.
Think I was 10 or 11 and asked him why he didn't have is monikle in and spoke without a German accent?

Hogan's Heros was on before I was even born, but it's absolutely one of my go-to shows when I just need a laugh.

Still love that show! 

And good way to use the dreaded sun glare for something more lighthearted than the usual cussing.
