Classic Style in Barstow
Title:  Classic Style in Barstow
Description:  Shortly after this photo was taken, the engineer of 1367 stopped and invited me, then 11, and my father for a ride. On that ride the engineer gave me a lifetime memory--he let me work the controls (at his direction, of course). Thanks to my sister for agreeing to let me post.
