Bald Knob, Arkansas Strawberry Homefest, Saturday, May 8, 2010.  This has been an annual celebration for decades. Back in the early part of the 20th century, there used to be unit strawberry trains out of here on the Missouri Pacific, up until the 1950s. This is also the day UP 1995 headed UP's Engineering Special through here. Bald Knob is an hours drive north of Little Rock on the busy Union Pacific Hoxie and Memphis Subs.  (Ken Ziegenbein photos)

Union Pacific's busy Hoxie Sub and Memphis Sub run through here. Note the old bridge signals, still in use.

Rubber Duckies!!! Don't you remember these from childhood in the bathtub and also at Fairs of the past.
