The Daylight I see now, they are new! Actually, I have been as close as you can get without being under the train. For the Eisenhower centennial in ABILENE, KANSAS, we first chased the Southern Pacific Daylight steam train with a squadron of WWII airplanes. Then after we landed, we were taken to the depot in the back of a DUKW. We stood at attention close enough to reach out and touch her if we wanted to, as the Daylight, full of WWII veterans pulled in to the station! Every one was either dressed in WWII cloths or their best I Like Ike 50s outfits, we were in our Ike Jackets naturally.
