I went over to local hero Randy Croley’s woodworking shop to talk about cabinets and he was not there, but on the way back, I passed the Wichita Eagle. And what did I see? The BNSF locomotive dropping off three boxcars of paper and at least one of ink, and picking up an empty tank car for ink!
Here is the video:
Too bad the wind made such a hiss, in reality it was a lovely late summer evening with cicadas in the background and bugs hissing and just really a gentle breeze that the iphone microphone distorted in fuzz. A pity. You can still get cool old brick warehouses and flashing lights and that wonderful train horn (probably announcing to me – do NOT get near these tracks when we come by) and a few passing cars and the streetlight’s glare.
Pretty cool I think. How could you live or work downtown near Old Town or the Eaton or Commerce Street and “not” love trains?
I hope they bring back train service to Wichita and speed it up from here to DFW and Austin and north to KC and Chicago. How wonderful would that be?
