It's 1943 and the country is at war. Allied victories are turning the tide of the war and America's industries and the country's railroads, big and small, are doing their part.

Where is this Wednesday #1
OK I've vaguely complained in the past about blogs with Wordless Wednesdays and I'm not starting that here. My friend and fellow blogger Darel Leedy has on his blog about his Colorado & Southern layout what he calls Roper's Snapshot Saturday (Roper is his highly intelligent dog who has an eye for picking out unique photos of the C&S) and instead of being a week excuse for a post to run up post numbers, it starts conversations and contributions from his blog readers. Even though I have virtually little knowledge of the C&S, I find it highly entertaining reading what people post about the photos. So in the spirit of Roper and his snapshot Saturdays, I'm starting here my Where is it Wednesdays.

So without further adieu, we'll start week 1 with the cover photo for this blog:
