Reply to "A New York State of Mind"

Arnold, Penn Central?  Sure, why not?  Of course I imagine that the merger that created PC didn't make a lot of New York Central and Pennsylvania Railroad railfans become friends with each other?

Item: Utica, New York, was the birthplace of the late Annette Funicello of Mickey Mouse Club and beach party fame.  She was born on October 22, 1942.  Sadly she contracted MS and passed away several years ago.  I was born in 1946 and grew up in the 50s with beautiful black and white TV and never missed watching the MMC as well as the mini-series Annette which was released in 1958 and aired on the MMC.  Annette also made a guest appearence in the Walt Disney series Zorro which aired on TV during thos period too.  She sang a beautiful song written for her to sing in the series, "Lonely Guitar" which in my opinion really brought out her talent.

It shouldn't be forgotten, that Walt Disney was himself a well known railfan and operated a live steam railroad at his residence.  There have been countless models produced over the years that featured Disney charactures, many in O gauge.  Perhaps a new post featuring Disney models would be interesting and entertaining for OGR readers?
