Posting the two pix again, since they don't show up on my screen at the moment and may be giving others problems as well:

My neck of the woods. My dad would take me on a round trip from Cairo to Fulton Ky on The City of New Orleans, just for the heck of it.  Always rode in the observation car. Circa early 1960's.
