|Our head end power on the train was a
combination of steam and diesel, and I kind of got the feeling that the
steamer was mainly for show, although it was running.
And it is an old diesel...
|Clearing the traffic. You can leave
your car in Williams and stay in a hotel at the Grand Canyon, arriving
by train. Next time...
|Of course, with a good shoot-em-up to get
you in a train riding mood in the morning, you know the gang will want
revenge and will hold up the train in the afternoon! The Sheriff
was kind enough to stop for a photo while he chased the bad guys.
Is that a great mustache or what???!!!
|We survived the train heist, and the next
morning we rode on over to Kingman on parts of the old Route 66.
There we turned north towrds Las Vegas, stopping at Hoover Dam.
Since 9/11 they have been trying to build a by-pass bridge so you won't probably be able to drive over the Dam anymore.
|Here is a good view of the Hoover Dam
itself. We were headed to the refreshment in the visitor center
at the bottom of the photo.
Another smile, but this one was pure relief from the heat!
