    Love Dillon, MT. Do they still have the steakhouse downtown?

    I don't know, I spent an hour or so looking over the 'historic stuff' next to the depot but did not overnight or eat in Dillon.

    Old Chicago & Northwestern depot, Ames, Iowa.

    First memories of living anywhere; we lived 2 blocks from the depot. I have ridden steam powered passenger trains from here, also saw and rode behind my first 'streamliner' diesel out of here.

    There are stories that a couple of us rode freights out of here while we were in college. Stories, I tell you.

    A 1958 aerial view. You can see the depot center left. Lower right is a house that we lived in, upstairs; a WWII Greek immigrant family lived downstairs. Pretty sure we moved out in '55.

    45° building across the alley to the left of the house was a DX gas station, one of my go to's. Large building to the left rear was the Collegiate Theater. You can see the marquee. Another go to. Mom would give me a quarter so she could have a little free time (babysitter to me). Broke my heart when they raised the ticket price to 20¢ leaving me with only 5¢ for candy.....

    When we lived there, there was an old diner just in the front yard, on the DX side. One of those that looks sort of like a RR car, like Gibbs goes to on NCIS. I could walk right in. Still full of old time china. The building at 45° to the right went in after we left; cleaners. It looks to me like the huge old buckeye tree I climbed was still between the cleaners & the house.

    Here’s a find...
    In the docks of Harlingen (the Netherlands) I found perhaps some 200 meter of abandonment railway lying near the railway station.
    Clearly somekind of monument for old times ...?
    There was just this one carriage on it.
    And you know what, it looked brilliant.

    Detail: if you look closely, you’ll see that the railway (two actually) leads to the big crane a big further down the road. Adjustments.jpg
