The Capital Crescent Trail... then not now

photos of trains at various spots on what is now the Capital Crescent Trail

I remember when that trail was train tracks
in grade school I flattened many a penny under the wheels of the passing train

that train slowed down to a crawl... slow enough that a young grade schooler could climb aboard for a ride

too bad it did not always slow down where I needed to get off!

it is scary to think that I was my son Dean's age when I was doing this sort of "poor decision" sort of thing
