Enjoy the Ride, Bob!
A dear friend of our family has retired and I created this card to send him off on a joyful journey of fun and relaxation.  Bob loves trains.  He belongs to a train club in northeastern Ohio.  He and his wife Linda have traveled the U.S. to see train exhibits, track engineering phenmonen through mountain passes and view other train memorabilia that exist in our countrysides.  Bob is an industrious fellow and a few years of ingenuity, elbow grease and tender loving care with nuts, bolts and steel plates out in the family barn has resulted in a small scale model train that is large enough to ride.  My husband and I have had the pleasure of a twilight train ride through the woods on a moonlit night on Bob's treasured train.  Bob's wife Linda says that she finds the evening rides so restful.  I would have to agree.  Thanks Bob, we enjoyed the fruits of your hard work!

Wonderful card. That is an awesome train image. My dad had a Model Train set so this brought some good memories to mind.

Popping back by because I hadn't seen the photo of your friends Model train before I hit the comment button. Now that is a Model Train for sure. How cool.
