I hope to use this blog as an avenue to express my thoughts and adventures of all of my fishing expeditions and any other journeys I may undertake.

Cathey and I made a trip a few weeks ago that
really brought back a lot of childhood memories. We were in Bryson City North
Carolina getting ready to ride the Great Smoky Mountain Train Express through
parts of the Blue Ridge Parkway and the Great Smoky Mountains. The scenery on
the train ride was spectacular along the NantahalaRiver, but what really got
my attention was the huge Lionel Train display in BrysonCity. The display was a
theme recreation of the 50’s and 60’s complete with a working drive in theater
and numerous other displays that was present in those early years. I spent over
an hour filming and talking to the conductor of the six trains that were
running and viewing the hundreds of models that Lionel has on display there. The
little model train sets my brother and I played with back in the day were not
on this level.
