Well, not exactly Christmas but close.
B. Smith was there to capture a run of the Pecos Valley Southern on December 22, 1978. This is a bit of a follow up to my July 26, 2014 post, “From the depths of the Pecos archives!”
Follow along as B. Smith narrates via the captions.
Hope you enjoyed the (almost) Christmas run of the Pecos Valley Southern. It was simple, but really kind of perfect, being that the engineer and brakeman may have wanted to get back home early to begin their Christmas holiday. Maybe one of them was going to make a huge pot of Posole for the holidays.
Here are a couple of recipes. What a fantastic holiday dish!
If a reader has a favorite recipe, I’d be happy to post. I can’t wait for Christmas! Maybe I’ll just make some now.
