They did a great job and were running several trolleys, several interurbans, a caboose train, a Burlington Zephyr train (see pictures), and a steam train with old ...
AND .. (drumroll please) my DRIVER'S LICENSE! (:
To be honest, I figured that since I've already got both an
Australian & an international driver's license, getting my
