With the collar, neck ties and skinny pencil skirt, I thought the end look was a little 1940s.
When I was 12 years old I took my first long distance trip beginning at this exact train station. Before that, I had never been further than New Jersey. The trip went from Harrisburg, Pennsylvania to Portland, Oregon....by train....by coach class. I spent four days on a train without a bed, without an ipod, without a friend, without much of anything at all. For a 12 year-old it was misery.
Funny thing is sometimes I think it would be cool to do it over again....not by coach of course. Even though I was twelve and bored to death I have to admit there were some really cool sites. The train had a special car made entirely of windows. It was like riding in a bubble. I remember traveling through the Cascade Mountains, over the famous Gassman Coulee Trestle bridge, along the Mississippi, across endless North Dakota wheat plains and through Montana Canyons. I ate spare ribs in a moving restaurant and sipped soda in a downstairs bar and roamed freely from car to car....I also watched Back to the Future II for the first time ever. So it wasn't all bad.
So in tribute to that experience I'm calling this the Oregon Rail Frock.
