Exactly 100 years ago today, my 18 year old grandfather, Kurt William Leucht, wrote the following entry into his journal:
At 5:00am, the train stopped in Hornell, NY, where we had a twenty minute layover. We had breakfast. We continued on the whole day and night. During daylight hours, I was able to enjoy the wonderful landscape. Occasionally there was a village or small city where the train stopped.
You can read my grandfather’s entire journal by clicking below. It’s quite interesting! Of course, I’m biased! 🙂
Thanks for your interest!
