I rode the Twain because of Al's article about the shape it was in. I'd been on her several times in the last few months and had seen what looked like sloppy work on the engine and had seen some dry rot before but...
Al and DB's pics are right, it's truely sad.
Maybe a group e-mail to TDA/Burbank or an online petion is in order here... but I digress.
Anyway I just got wrapped up in TSI. I didn't even get pictures of the very best part, the center of the island is visible from the upper decks of the Twain and what looks to be some sort of "Cove" (I got the impression it had some inlet of water)area is partially visible from the middle deck (much of it under tarp)....but it was getting dark so I had no chance to retake more pictures from the TOP deck <HINT, HINT, HINT>
As for the filming I was just really impressed with the idea of getting to drive my car around DCA. Man would Pep Rally be REALY different.
Very impressive TSI pics. I am going for a trip 03/4-03/06 and I am for sure going to ride the Twain, I have not done that for centuries! This trip since it is away from Thanksgiving or NYE, I am determined to do things I don't normally do (like do Walk in Walt's Footsteps) Thank you for the post, I am for sure adding this to the itinery.
