GUEST,Joe_F BS: A memorable train journey (33) RE: BS: A memorable train journey 03 Apr 06


It must have been about 1943, so I must have been about 6. My mother & I went from California to Vermont by train -- probably to look after our property. Civilians had to get special permission to take long train trips at that time. I remember us being the only civilians in a car full of uniformed soldiers. I let go a hard-boiled egg that my mother had peeled, and it rolled the length of the aisle. A ways to the east, perhaps at the same time, occurred the dreadful train trip (obSongs) in "The Second Front Song".
