Nate (below in his train barn) is a retired boilermaker and master welder and he has always loved trains.
When he retired, he decided to lay track around their house. "Friends told me I was a good wife to support Nate with his train dream, but I had a dream, too," Linda told me.
Linda's dream was to expand their house, move their living space into the new upstairs, and make the downstairs into a B&B. The merging of two dreams became the B&B Railroad Depot in Oregon, Ohio (just east of Toledo).
Nate gave me a ride on his train (that's me riding the train and waving).
I had a restful night and a delicious breakfast before continuing my hike westward to Toledo.
