We started the day driving to the Naranjo Museum of Paleontology. Dr. Naranjo personally gave us a tour of some of the dinosaur skeletons he had recovered from all over the world. Fascinating, but I like the stuff in the parking lot better.
The next stop was the history museum in Diboll, Tx. Some of the photos above were in the parking lot at Diboll. Again we had 80% humidity in the morning, air so thick you could cut it with a knife, and very unpleasant at 80 degrees. Still a great bunch of cars to enjoy.
Lunch was at Sam Rayburn Reservoir, the largest lake in Texas. Like all lakes in Texas, it is man made.
Lunch was fried catfish filets, hush puppies, ham hock beans and creamy cole slaw. I didn't notice any hungry people after lunch.
After that we toured on to San Augustine, one of the oldest cities in Texas. The Spanish were here before the builders of the Mayflower were born.
We thought this church was interesting, built by former slaves after the civil war. It was a couple blocks off the square in San Augustine. Its members are quite proud of it, and justifiably so.
Thanks so much for posting the photos! If you run across any body numbers etc. on the 1922 and earlier open cars -- please let us know along with the approximate engine date or engine number with the last three or four numbers xxxx.
Several of the cars appear to be unrestored and any features you see on them or others cars are always appreciated.

You're doing a fine job Royce, any news about Ted?
This morning we heard Ted is doing so well he may be discharged in a day or two. He was supposed to do some supervised walking and other physical therapy.
