Today in the parking lot of St. Louis Union Station kamoranakrre encountered the picture of the day.

  • There is a Flippin, Arkansas. I have no idea if this car came from there or not.
  • Sorry about the poor picture quality... It looks great on a two-inch screen!
  • When leaving Union Station a guy came up to me to share in his spoils. Seems somebody left a pack of cigarettes lying on a table outside, and he noticed and picked them up. That was nice of him to offer.
  • On the train back someone was talking about how Metrolink was saving them $120.00/week in gas. I'm impressed that they were driving some 1,000 miles every week along a path the train serves.
  • One of the security guards at the Shrewsbury-Landsdowne I-44 station must think I'm mighty suspicious. I was the only one on the platform that he asked to see valid fare from. Maybe he's afraid of cameras?

Love the picture, love the stories! Yes, I'll bet it was the camera that caught the guard's attention. Thank goodness you weren't holding something really dangerous, like a juice box and nail clippers!
