SEP 77 Milwaukee Road

Sometimes Dad would organize by company when sorting slides for Friday night slide night at Iron Horse Hobbies. This box must be one of those. As usual, the slides are only marked with the Kodak mount date but I recall that year’s trip was in August from home to South Dakota on another meandering route.

I have always liked switchers and these are no exception. The shadows and textures of the first two contrast nicely against the fresh looking paint.

The last two are washed out – I skipped Photoshop this time – but they are a study in weathering and details.

I can smell the creosote and oil on the ties. The smells of my childhood.
