Planes, Trains and Automobiles

Little Tweetsie #12 and Tweetsie Railroad #190 side-by-sideI’ve loved planes, trains and automobiles since I was a child, which my wife says I still am. From radio controlled planes to a full size Smith Mini Biplane and future Piper Cub Replica, from HO scale trains in my basement to G scale in my mother’s garden and now 1.5″ scale live steam in my back yard, from a 1956 Ford and 1985 Honda Prelude to 1964 1/2 and 1965 Mustangs, I love my hobbies.

My grandson is three and loves trains and planes. He hasn’t yet discovered automobiles, although he enjoys Hot Wheels cars¬† and track. Since he hasn’t seen my latest purchase, the Smith Mini Biplane, his favorite “PopPop Toy” is the train. And, we have a nice one.

Tweetsie Railroad #12

Tweetsie Railroad is an amusement park in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. It’s a retired ET&WNC narrow gauge locomotive that began traversing Eastern Tennessee and Western North Carolina in the 1860s.

Greg J. Gardner Riding Little Tweetsie Dungannon VALittle Tweetsie Railroad is a 1.5″ scale replica of the ET&WNC locomotive, powered by coal, fire, water and steam; like her full size counterpart. Located in our back yard in Banner Elk, NC. Loved by my grandson, we have a fantastic time playing in the back yard.

Eccentric vs. crazy –¬†Perhaps one today and another tomorrow.

I feel like you have to be rich for eccentricity to attach, so that means crazy must still apply. However, I hope you will help change my status. Pre-order Black Friday and help me become eccentric rather than crazy.

I hope you enjoy these ramblings.
