We spent some vacation days in southeastern Wisconsin.
Downtown Burlington has some beautiful buildings.
I didn't realize the WC/ CN mainline goes through the city.
And there is a river.
The MOW equipment was working, so I didn't see any trains,
but the track and city are beautiful.
Jelly Belly has a warehouse tour and a store in Kenosha,
and the place is popular.
Bus tours visit there.
|There is a tour train, The Jelly Belly Express.|
There are displays and big projection TV screens showing the history and making of jelly beans.
The store has a tremendous variety of flavors.
We went to Frank's Diner in downtown Kenosha.
The outside is brick.
The inside is the 1920's diner. The entrance door slides like on a passenger car.
It's a diner that was brought to the city on a flatcar and then hauled to the site by horses.
|Varnished wood, and windows.|
We were lucky to get seated right away, late in the morning but before the noon rush hour.
They have a unique 'rough' attitude about service, but the ladies were satisfied.
Frank's was on the Food TV Network show Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.
. . . . . . . . Later this Summer I'll show more of the area, some railroading, industry, and street cars.
I have gone back to an old photo program to get smaller file sizes for pictures for a web page.
Some might get blurry if you zoom in a lot. But it saves space for the server and downloads very fast.
If you want the full size picture, please contact me. An e-address is in the box on my index page.
