I’m in Ann Arbor with Fritz Milhaupt, friend of the show. He asked if I’d like to meet his friends who (with him) play trains. They are part of the Operations Road Show project, an offshoot of Rails on Wheels. They’ve been modeling the Wabash Railroad between Layfayette, Indiana and Peru, Indiana between Labor Day and Sept 25th, 1964. Yeah. They are train dorks AMONG train dorks. Yeah.
