I rode the line 3 times before, but I am glad to see things I missed.  I noticed you seem to be riding a southbound train, but the locations are presented progressivly northward.

Yes, I realize now I should've done things the other way around. Oops - Sign

Thanks for the train ride on the old D&H Mr. Harrison!

It looks like a lot of that area hasn't changed too much since Roger's Rangers were on the prowl in those woods.

By the way, any of you folks ever been to Fort Ticonderoga?  I was there 34 years ago.

Wow.  Oh wow!

I want to go back there to die!  Wink

Yes, we've been to Fort Ti, actually that first shot of the southbound freight and the northbound Amtrak were taken from the fort with a zoom lens (and no tripod Whistling). I was there with my railfan friend for national history day, who was the one who said "they're cruisin' ". I thought I would leave that in there and see if he ever watches far enough to notice... Wink
