Celebrating Dad’s retirement this month from Kansas City Southern Railroad…


This weekend, we celebrated my dad’s (J.B. Woods) retirement from Kansas City Southern Railroad with a fish dinner at Mike Anderson’s Restaurant in Gonzales, La.  His last official day will be Feb. 27. I hope he enjoys retirement as much as he has enjoyed his long career with the railroad.

See one of the group photos from the retirement event in the February 4, 2015 edition of The Webster Progress Times at http://websterprogresstimes.com/2015/02/04/retiring-from-kcs/.

I saw this article in the Sunday edition of The Columbus Dispatch and just had to find the photos from our tour of The Holiday Express in December 2007 in Tupelo. Photos from our adventure were published in the January 2008 edition of North Mississippi Christian Family, but I only saved the photos in black and white… I hate that I can’t find the color originals because it is spectacular… stop by and see for yourself tonight in West Point!
