June 16th, 2012…Since it was the third Saturday of the month, and it was my week to host the American Passenger Rail Heritage Foundation’s Let’s Talk Trains show. I chose to do the show from the St. Louis & Iron Mountain Railway in Jackson, Missouri. The railway is run by an all volunteer staff. They own the rolling stock, but, the roadbed and right of way is owned by another company that is trying to sell the rails for scrap. It is a great tourist railway; even the famous James gang would make an appearance down the line.
After the show…We headed to Cape Girardeau and looked at the flood wall paintings and found a railroad tracks, wondered where they lead. We will leave that to another wandering.
After eating at the local Arby’s, headed back up Interstate 55 to Washington.
That’s a wrap on this wandering…See Ya Next Time!
