Cornfield Meet

Things collide here.

Old school rocket train geeky goodness

So I learned today that my favorite stretch of railroad tracks in the whole world (a huge part of the inspiration for "Crossing Decembers") – actually has some historical significance. Wait – it gets better once you actually see some pictures of this thing! A-freaking-mazing. Seriously – when time travel is invented, I’m going
back to 1966 and hitchhiking to the fields of Northwest Ohio to watch
this beast. Can you even imagine what it would have been like to stand
by the tracks while this thing blasted by at almost two hundred miles
per hour? There’s more details here, too.
