Field, British Columbia, Canada

Some times life just works out a certain way. Case in point. We drove to Field, which is British Columbia, Canada. Went to head back across the train track and got stopped by this super long train. So we got out & got to see this old train station. & the hubby got to be super helpful to an older couple who was having a fuel leak. Too bad you could not go in to the train station & see even more architecture from this cool beauty.

Here is a train video please watch. & I thought that American trains were long but this Canadian train is way way long. ha. ha!! Do folks still do Chinese Fire drills? i think that is what they are called where you jump out of your car, run around the to another door and jump back in and drive off??! Beth ( :


Our trains are nothing like as long as American ones, so they would be even smaller then compared to the Canadian ones!! xx

Hi Beth, that is a long train. The little station is cute too! Best of all is the pretty mountain scene beyond the train.. I was waiting to see your chinese fire drill.

Have a happy day!

I'm not sure I've ever been a part of a Chinese Fire Drill, Beth. It looks like your train gave you an opportunity to get a good picture, but not enough time to explore. People seldom wait on trains anymore, because of all the overpasses....unless you are traveling in a small town like this one.
Those same trains go through NW Washington. They are trying to get more trains - 18 a day instead of 12 a day - and as you can imagine, there are those that are not for that idea - so what they have done is make the trains almost twice as long - making the waits at crossings unbelievable - not to mention the problems with emergency vehicles needing to get past the trains.

Wonderful old depot.

You made great use of the time the long time provided. We have long trains here too as Spokane is an interim link to Seattle.

That is a beautiful train station. I remember doing Chinese fire drills as a teenager in the city I grew up in. The train tracks when through the middle of the city and the freight trains were long so we'd hop out, run around the card and hop back in again. LOL We used to count the cars when we were little kids too. Hugs. Pam

Dells Mill, Augusta, Wisconsin

"Dells Mill", in Augusta, Wisconsin ...was a huge learning experience. Gus Clark, the museum guide was so great.

i just went to the website, to share the link with you guys and i see that Gus did pass away. i am trying to check my notes to see when we were there. we were trying to recall the day. my parents anniversary is August 24th. apparently the day he past away. (he was telling us that he did have some health issues, no details, but i thought he looked ok?) he was so cool. he was very descriptive and so fun to listen too. the mill had been in his family for years. he was just like a real history book. such a loss. (i just checked my notes we were there Thurs. 8/21) i hope he knew we enjoyed our visit. we told him so. thanked him for his time & explained we love seeing the odd, the different & the usual places throughout the US.

mills are becoming far and few. sad but true. ) :
i wonder who will take over the mill? he was having issues with the folks who wanted t…

We were so happy to find the restaurant ...some times we just head thinking we want to find the 1st great looking place to try out. & thankfully this was a great pick, check out these views we got to see while eating this fabulous meal. This meal was one of the best meals we had all of our whole Canadian trip. It was a amazing!! 1. appetizer, 2. I had halibut, 3. hubby had elk, and 4. was the pyramid chocolate yummyness. it was delicious!! Are you now hungry? Beth ( :
