    The Scenic Route to MN, Day Five

    A travel blog entry by wheelerlj on Aug 21, 2014

    We spent a quiet night in the East Fork campground, drifting off to sleep amid an odor of coal smoke... and awakened to a much stronger one. Seems the Durbin & Greenbrier starts the fire in its gear-driven, 1910 Climax during the evening before the first outbound consist of the work week. The locomotive is left banked until the fireman arrives, ca 6am, which is time to get serious about building a good fire and a head of steam for a 10am ...

    ... breed of steam locomotive.

    Linda found some additional pleasures in local crafts people's work -- quilting and other fabric arts; stained glass, jewelry, and some incredible baskets made from pine needles. Some incorporated carved pieces of walnut into the work. They were really beautiful. Some of the glass reminded us of the super high quality work done by our friend, Al Garber, in New Haven, whose lamps, sun catchers and other decorative pieces still adorn our house.

The train eventually came around the bend, and we got some more pictures.

    Back to the station for lunch and shots of the next train leaving. Then we headed back toward our campground.

Then back to the station to explore the rolling stock, the gift shop and the "gallery" -- a shop filled with the work of local artisans. The items for sale there included jewelry, pottery, brooms, quilts, and a dulcimer. Very interesting work and a really nice volunteer (one of the quilters) manning the shop.

    Before we went out again to chase the next train, we asked for more information, and ...

    Never thought I'd say this, but I'm missing my technology! At the moment, and probably for the next couple of days, we have no cell phone service and no email. Last night we had cell phone and email, but no internet. I can't touch base with the cat sitter, and I can only get on the internet if I sit at the picnic table outside the camper. It rained earlier, so the picnic table hence is wet and the sun on my iPad screen is making it hard to see. ...
