Impending Railroad Strike, food and supply shortages.
Sept. Railway Strike and what it means for you. Hello there and welcome back to the homestead! Today's video is a doozie. On Sunday, Norfolk Southern released a statement detailing it had "begun enacting its contingency plans for a controlled shut down of our network at Friday, Sept. 16." This could, if no agreement is reached, be another major disruption in supply chains, food, power, ect. Association of American Railroads warned that a railroad strike could cost the US economy upwards of $2 billion per day. Please think about getting your homes and families in order however you can. Get your emergency or "go bags" in order with non perishable food, medicine, batteries, flashlights, pet items, and water. This way if there is a disruption, you will not feel it as harshly!

Southern California Railway Museum Tour
In Today’s Kim’s Adventure We’re at the Southern California Railway Museum. It was founded in 1956 at Griffith Park and later moved to it’s current location in 1958, being named the Orange Empire Railway Museum. In 2019 the name was changed again to the Southern California Railway Museum and it’s been that way ever since. The railway was formed to preserve the old Los Angeles streetcars, but has since expanded their collection to include steam engines, passenger trains and more. The Socal Railway Museum would be a nice day trip for the whole family, and the best part is that the admission is completely free.
