These imaginary journeys have been with me since childhood, each one different from the last one, but every one comforting in its own way.
This week's Sepia Saturday prompt is a picture of a miniature railway. I don't have any old photos of trains, sepia or otherwise, but I do have a newer one, taken only this past November at a local museum:
The photo isn't old, but the train is. As it turns out, the only train in my photo collection is also a miniature. That's serendipity, I think.
So tell me: what kind of magic does a train whistle work on you?
This week's Saturday Song Selection is a long-time favorite song about trains. I'm pretty sure it's one you know.
The song is "The City of New Orleans" by Arlo Guthrie.
