Oh, I know Fred! Been there and got pics back when the Amtrak traveling museum was there. Why in hell did they paint it with crap chrome aluminum paint and string lights all over it?

Yep, I've driven over it many moons ago. I see they finally dressed it up and made it for foot traffic only. I hated to see the old trestle bridge on New Braunfels go. Thanks for the satellite view hadn't thought to use it.

I can't make this out but it's darn similar to the A Grona Mattress oufit. But, it's up near the old Friedrich Factory.

He wrote City of New Orleans. That old Arlo Guthrie song. I wish they would play more of that stuff on the radio.

He was one of the best. Never got to see him live, but saw my favorite, Tom Rush, live several times in both San Francisco and Boston. He's still touring and as good as ever.

Cool san antonio viva siempre

wow, reading this forum reminds of my childhood and teen years!

some of pami's San Antonio highlights:
Living on base at Randolph AFB - loving the way they decorated the TajMahal with christmas lights to move like a huge bell with the Holy Manger nearby, then later off Keystone and Evers/Wurzbach area.
My Mom+Dad taking us to Jim's Frontier Burger then driving us thru Brackenridge Park - I loved crossing the place in the road where the river flowed across it, and PlayLand Park's little metal trains and trams and ferris wheel, having our birthday parties there, popcorn, cotton candy... great childhood - 1958-68!
Playing in the San Antonio River with my cousins - running under the street tunnels off Riverside Drive.
After a airforce tour in Turkey, we went to California, then returned to our beloved hometown in 1974: Freaking out at teen car trips to The Midget Mansion, Woman Hollering Creek, The Rail Tracks that the AngelKids Push you over, The Wishing Well at the abandoned subdivision.
Mrs. Patterson's Awesome Drama and Life Coach Guidance and Fun at Holmes High School... We did a Halloween play for an orphanage that was soooooo very cool... I played Medusa ~~*.*~~
Rehearsing play lines and sharing little kings and laughs at Snowden.
I saw my fave movie star, Roddie McDowell at La Hasienda Dinner Playhouse.
Had my first "legal" alcoholic cocktail drink at the Spinning Bar of the Hemisphere Tower - Thank you, Royce "Alice Cooper" Mackrel - RIP, Dearest Friend. Worked sound with MHMR's excellent production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. John's Wooden Rose of Texas kiosks entertained Wonderland Mall, the Airport and the RiverWalk. The Wild Rose was always a kick up the fun place, and the Riverwalk's Bwana Dick was a treat!
My mom was a Burlesque dancer, Kitty Marlowe, before I was born and tease~danced at the Green Gate Burlesque Club - that's where my Dad scooped her up! She is 73 and still reminesces her glory days ~their glory days, my dad, "Van" used to drag race his Cobra engined Mustang, and they'd go on Road Rally's... their favorite watering hole was The What's It To Ya, where they had many fun times with the Dart Tournaments and Chili Cook Offs, and Niosa Festivals!
Fond Memories, indeed, this San Antonio Rose has been away so long... time to reacquaint
