On this trip, I was specifically interested in the Toilets. Odd, but when you need to put an eleven-year-old and her cat inside one, it’s pretty important you have an idea of how much room she has to maneuver in. I already knew that the toilet itself, flushed onto the tracks…thus the helpful advice of “Do not flush while in the station.” But the surprise was how relatively recently this practice changed. If I remember correctly, the man from the museum said it was in the 1960’s. That doesn't seem that long ago to me.
Angel Self: “This item isn't in the book.”
Devil Self: “It might be in the next book. ou know, I was thinking about a camping scene with Pa and Miss Sternum.”
Angel Self: “Then when you write that book, you can come back and see if the cup’s still here.”
Left arm yanks right arm out the door.
In spite of a library and extensive web search, I've already purchased two railroad books. That’s enough. (For now.)
