In my search for the meaning of the number 61, I was led to this website

The man in seat 61 .... click ...

How to travel by train & ship...

Maybe you don't like flying. Or perhaps you just prefer classic travel by train or ship, where a journey is something to enjoy not endure... This website will tell you how to travel comfortably by train or ship for many journeys where you might think that air was now the only option.


A very cool site in its own right.

~~~~~~~~~~~

but of course it didn't stop there. It made me wonder if we could get to a rainforest by train. And we can, we can!

the daintree river train ... click North Queensland, Australia. Daintree Coast ... click

The Iguazu Rainforest train ... click ... Argentina

Nile River Rainforest Train .... click Charleston, New Zealand

or we can take the train to Felinwynt Rainforest Centre ... click ... in Cardigan, West Wales!

ahhhhhhhh, here's another nice trip ... click ...

or perhaps The Ecuador Explorer?

Is there anything better than a train ride with friends? Talking through the night. Sitting in the observation dome as the sun comes up.

Join me on Track 61 with your luggage and cameras and love of learning and life.

All Aboard, WildClickers!

Living on the tracks must have been very uncomfortable, dangerous even. Good to see you too, Danon.

The year was 1942 - I was born in a shack by the railroad track...... Just kidding!!

I grew up living in a housecar which looked like a boxcar except it had windows and doors and was accompanied by a watercar and a separate boxcar that my dad used as a tool storage unit. He operated a crane that laid the rails for the trains to run on.

During preschool years I had the run of the places that most Moms placed off-limits for their kids. And, after I started school all my friends wanted to come to my house to play. It was great fun, exciting and fast paced.

The train engines at that time were steam driven - the big "main liners" would roar through breathing fire and smoke, with steam coursing through their veins - they were all alive you know.

Yep,
We lived at every town - little and big - between Fort Worth, TX and El Paso, TX - along the (then know as) Texas and Pacific Railroad. You may Google the T&P for more info. We were at Midland, TX when the Bush family was there - way before they were known to anyone outside the city limits.
