Remarks & Notes 
My friend, and fellow RP contributor (and Simpson Railroad Book author) Joel Hawthorn rides the Last Train from Dayton on a beautiful late spring day. Behind the 1201 is a string of center beam cars, the last one in Dayton, followed by the Simpson caboose and the 900. Other than some switching in town, That's All Folks, the Fat Lady is warming up. It's all over except for the tears.
