On a tourist line that runs in the nice weather you want to connect with the outside, hear the clackity-clack, smell the air. It's too bad you can't retrofit windows that open. Or can you?Every time a Budd sealed-window is replaced with a retro-fitted sliding window, a unicorn dies.

However, I am unfamiliar with the area and want to get a map so that I will know the roads. But... I don't know if the train departs the station heading west, heading east, or heading south to Adams. I assume it heads south.Sorry I didn't see this sooner, I would have directed you to the map published on the HVS web site.
Where does the train stop and turn around? Are there any roads nearby that area?
