1: Life brings simple pleasures to us every day. It is up to us to make them wonderful memories. ~CathyAllen

3: Time to pass through the gate and enter the office trailers to start the last day of fun at the railroad.
4: Last Day at the Office
5: The old-fashioned 1950s trailer made coming to work feel like traveling back in a time machine.
6: Last Day on the Engine
8: The difference between try and triumph is a little umph. ~Author Unknown
10: Here he comes....There he goes!
11: All Aboard!
12: Choo! Choo!
13: Chug! Chug! Chug! Chug!
14: On the train! Operate the train! Off the train! Repeat!
15: Last Day = 100 degress All the heat (and cold in the wineter) will not be missed!
16: It's hard to say goodbye; it's easier to say it with cake. Thanks Mike!
17: The Amazing Conductor, Carlos
18: A small party waited at home for the official last return from the railroad. However, in true railroad format, the day was extended and extended and extended again. What was once a day that would end at 12:30, became a day that stretched until 7:30. Dail, Sean, and Amanda waited with cake and balloons to celebrate.
