Amtrak - 40th Anniversary

Amtrak Exhibition Train, Charleston, S.C.
The Amtrak Exhibition train pulled on to the tracks next to Ansonborough Field for the weekend so after the Walk for Water this morning I headed in that direction. I have some happy memories of riding the train from Charleston to Washington, DC and to New York City with my kids when they were little. We used to like to get the bedroom compartments when we could. 

Amtrak Police Officers and canine partners are traveling with the train. Officer Dan Scanlan gave me his card with a picture of him and his dog Bleckey so I made them re-enact the pose below.  Check out the view of Dockside apartments framed by the train window.  Makes me want to go on a train ride.
