Choo choo

I enjoyed the roller coasters and shows at Dollywood yesterday. A Thursday in May turned out to be a perfect time to visit. The park wasn't too crowded, and the lines at the popular rides were short. I was kind of surprised that my favorite attraction turned out to be the Dollywood Express, the steam train that chugs up the mountain and back. I guess I shouldn't be too surprised. I am, after all, a transit geek who has been known to ride streetcars and funiculars for fun. I think there were other transit geeks on the train. As our trip got underway, I looked around and saw that several men of a certain age were, like me, grinning broadly.

Except I was disappointed when I realized I'd gotten on an A train and we weren't going to stop at Addison.
