Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly, laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile. - Samuel Longhorne Clemens (Mark Twain)

I haven't taken any of these pictures myself. I stumbled across all of them on the web. I know for sure that some of them were taken by Robert Smaus but I'm not sure who took some of the others. Some of them are   historical archive photos.


  1. Hi Kris -

    I am a game store owner in Seattle (Blue Highway Games) and a friend of Jonathan Franklin who pointed me to your blog. We are going to run an Empire Builder event and I was hoping to get a copy of Transatlantic Rails to make it bigger and better! Any chance you can get a hold of one or let me know how to get a hold of one? You can contact me at contact@bluehighwaygames.com. Thanks for any help. Brian
