Thinking of my dad

SP 9323 with my dad at throttle

I have been thinking a lot about my dad today. It is his birthday.

My father was a locomotive engineer for the Southern Pacific. Trains were my father's "magic carpet made of steel." It was my father who instilled in me a passion for railroading and most anything having to do with trains. My dad passed away in 1977. He was 58 years-old.
