Setting a Scene From Long Ago

By alwaysakid

Filed under: 1950 Studebaker Champion (FozzieMobile)

In April of this year, during a brief moment when it wasn't snowing or raining, I took the 1950 Studebaker for a ride to Fridley, MN, where I watched a steam train go by. The train was pulled by a Milwaukee Road 4-8-4 steam locomotive. I took a picture in hopes of creating a scene that might look like it came from the early 1950s. I think I got pretty close, other than the modern Amtrak diesel that promoters had to add behind the steam engine for insurance purposes. I guess they didn't trust the steam locomotive to make it without a break-down. Imagine if we had to tow a modern car behind our antique cars every time we went out because our insurers were worried our classic car might have a break-down!
