Technically it’s Sunday, but hey, close enough!
These ladies remind me of grown up boxcar children. Did you read those books when you were little? I don’t remember them all that well, but I do recall that a big part of the appeal was the idea of kids setting up house for themselves in a boxcar. I think these ladies are about to have a train inhabiting adventure.
The pictures are from a magazine called Fudge.
A lot of the romance of trains was killed for me by about 10 trips from Michigan to Vermont via Amtrack, wherein I witnessed a buffet of uncomfortable social faux pas, including but not limited to child neglect and racism! However, these fashionable rail-queens make me want to button on a sensible cardigan and hop a train to the prairie lands! Or at least write about someone who does.
