    It's Groundhog Day and I missed my shadow (which is LARGE to be missed) because I was running around town.

    Here are 5 questions dealing with transportation in the USA. Take a guess and we'll see what answers LOOK good (and which ones ARE good) [​IMG]

    ANSWERS ARE NOW POSTED at the bottom of the thread. See how you did! Or take the quiz (without looking at the answers) and then check for the right answers!

    # 1 My answer was a guess, for I don't know, actually. The Civil war may have skewed my guess, as to the track mileage amount actually destroyed.

    Actually for me they were all guesses, but I feel fairly good about two, and two more seem to make sense to me. I'll await with bated and baited breath.
