This Santa Fe Brakeman had just thrown the switch back to the Main and was hurrying to step onto the last car as the train slowly rolled out of the siding and onto the Main after a meet.

The pic looks odd because the left side is a mountainside on the Plywood Empire Route and the pic was cut to fit.

Our main course was B&O Cornbread Pie, served in individual Ramekins. Mom asked the Steward for the recipe and we still make it today.

Patrick, that was indeed a fine adventure. We got on the Eastbound late in the evening Christmas Eve. The old P&LE station on Smithfield St in Pittsburgh had a decorated 25' tall tree in front and another one inside on the main concourse. Spent Christmas Day walking around DC. We were disappointed the Smithsonian was closed (on Christmas Day-who'd 'a thunk it ) so walked to the White House and looked at the National Christmas Tree. Got back on the Capitol in the late afternoon and returned to Pittsburgh.

Brian;

That is a fascinating structure - do you have any additional info on what it is??? It looks like either a place to unload boxcars on the outside for transfer to trucks on the inside, or vice-a-versa.
