I see enough funerals, don't need a locomotive to remind me.
Your post reminds me of a time I was chatting with a senior neighbor of mine:
I asked him, "What have you been up to lately?"
He responded, "I've been pretty busy. I've had 14 funerals this month."
Shocked, I said, "Oh my goodness, I'm sorry for your loss. It must be tough getting old and seeing your friends and family pass on like that...and so close together, what a shame. How are you holding up?"
He laughed and said, "No! I started driving a hearse for the funeral home."
I laughed it off with him, but was certainly embarrassed that I made that assumption. Haha!
FWIW, any excuse to make a Pennsy K4 is a good one. RIP Harding.
