Float Fishing in the Missouri Ozarks

An unused linen card from the Blair Cedar & Novelty Works in Missouri which is the world leader in the production of cedar products and is still in business! 

Not sure why, but this card makes me think of the movie that Ned Beatty in the bowler?  :D

The Flying Yankee

The Flying Yankee was a diesel-powered streamliner built in 1935 for the Maine Central Railroad and the Boston and Maine Railroad by Budd Company and with mechanical and electrical equipment from Electro-Motive Corporation.

The eventual goal is to restore the train completely to running condition. The train was moved to Lincoln, New Hampshire, on August 10, 2005, to the Hobo Railroad where the mechanical restoration is taking place.  More info at:
