a blast from the past

See that gentleman with the fedora. That's how men dressed in the 40's and 50's, not just going to work but even to ballgames. Very natty, some may even say debonair. If you look closely at his tie, you'll see RR logos from all over.

My wife especially wanted to go to this exhibit of antique trains called the "Parade of Trains" at Grand Central Terminal since her father used to be a train dispatcher at the Union Terminal in Cleveland Ohio.  She even had the distinction of riding in these old Pullman cars on the NY Central back in the day.

We'll never see this again - a classy way to travel, in style and relaxed - a blast from the past.
