Rambling observations on books, history, movies, transit, obsolete technology, baseball, and anything else that crosses my mind.

Waateekaa Decorated for Christmas -- December 16, 2012
I took this photo of the Bechtel Family Museum decorated for Christmas on 28-November-2012. The Bechtel family lived in a railroad car, the WaaTeeKaa, at remote job
sites in the 1920s. This car, originally from the Chicago, Saint Paul,
Minneapolis and Omaha, was restored to externally resemble the
WaaTeeKaa as a gift to Steve Bechtel, Senior and his wife Laura in 1988.
