Aristocrat of the Rails - 1926

Thanks for stopping by John's Island.


  1. What a great image on this postcard. The big Iron Horse!

  2. Today, that seems like such a long time to me, 20 hours, but then again, I'm not sure of the distance. Thinking of the new bullet trains and how fast they are, I guess :-)

  3. 'speed and security' - i like that motto.

  4. My Grandpa worked on these trains (many years ago, he was retired by the time I was born). I bet he would have liked this photo!

  5. I really love this. I wish I would ride the rails at least once :) that would be memorable.
