Part II: Train
trip to Austin

I woke up as we had been stopped awhile in Marshall, Texas. The conductor came over the intercom and alerted us that debris was on the track. We were lucky as a slow freight train had spotted it in time. Of course my mind went back to the time of bandits and train robberies of the Old West.

At least now it's daylight, and we can see the countryside. Some places were dilapidated, while other communities had restored many of their old buildings to their original splendor. Texas, I see has been good about that, reinventing those old feed and hardware-type stores into functional businesses, yet maintaining the historic appeal.
