Aboard the Santa Claus Special, Saturday, November 21, 1998: We're right on schedule as we round the curve at the north end of the siding at Miller Yard, VA. The remains of the old interchange yard with the Interstate Railroad would be on your right. A northbound empty hopper train is holding for us, and its engineer is out front to wave. In fact, just about everybody on the train waves, and everyone waves back. It's a spontaneous human experience. Next stop: Dungannon.
