  2. Neat find Keith. Thanks for sharing that. My wife is a JFK memorabilia collector. I’ll show her this as well.

    This is unique. Signed JAC (Jim Chronister) and his brother LLC (L.L. Chronister). L.L. was the man that had the replica depot in his backyard in Chaffee. LL and my grandfather nearly came to blows once at the Chaffee bowling alley, Lucky 13 lanes. They both used their personal bowling balls. One came up the ball return. and each said it was his. They both had the same brand ball and both had it marked with initials. Both were LLC! Grandpa, Louie Lee Cannon(LLC), finally realized his ball was heavier and this was not his. It just goes to show you that even if you have bigger balls you are not always right.

    Kieth, If you don't mind I'm going to share this on one of the Chaffee history Facebook pages.

    Fine with me. The train order is currently in the possession of a gentleman named Dale Williams.

    Very neat find, Keith. Thanks for sharing that.

    Tim: I’m laughing. That’s some story. Who’d a thunk?

    That’s the same alley where my Mom learned to bowl. I’m sorry I never got the chance to see it.

    Best Regards,
