That is Teischan and Devanee, Mother’s Day, 2009 — from the Dome Car.
That is, hard to believe, Teischan and Devanee. Can’t see this happening now.
This was Deanna’s request, what she wanted for Mother’s Day that year. Getting tickets for the Dome Car was my my idea.
We are HUGE fans and supporters of the Conway Scenic Railway. I have been riding it for 20 years. Matthew, who had no choice but to inherit my love for trains, loved going there and going on the train.
Deanna lived in North Conway, very close to the line, for a couple of years before we met. So she knew the train well. That was why she suggested that we do a train ride for Mother’s Day 2009. We have been back since — but not recently. Our bad. Love the train. Great experience. Great people. We have done the Bartlett run multiple times — typically in the “Gertrude Emma”. Never dined on board — mainly because of the kids. Well we will have to go there soon. I miss it.
Happy Birthday Conway Scenic Railroad. Keep up the great work.
My favorite engine there. The British Deltic like shape has a visceral appeal to me. I am a sucker for the Deltic. Still gives me goose bumps.
