Well, its that time of year again and I dropped my boat off for storage and headed to Attica for dinner. Before parking in front of the pizza place, I drove around to the NS shed/ex depot and as I crossed the track looking east, I see a solid green over solid red signal. Cool, somebody is on the way!

I waited about 15 minutes or so and finally the cross buck and signals start blinking. And then around the corner he comes. This was about 6:10pm. Here are several pictures. Unfortunately, they didn't come out perfect. I should have stood outside my truck instead of inside through the glass. Live and learn.

For a large picture, I'll just post the link.

Instead of going to the pizza place like I usually do, the restaurant near the tracks was open for business. So I stopped in. Exchange Street appears to be in an abandoned state but when I walked into the building, wow! It was like going back in time. Beautifully restored. I'm not terribly picky about food but my Rigatoni was absolutely delicious! I actually had to slow down eating it. I recommend this place [The Attica Hotel]. This is a place that you can take your family or girlfriend on a date. Time it with a train only 75 feet away and you got it made.
