take the egg train

Winter aconites are suddenly in bloom here in rural Pennsylvania, but pussy willows are barely a thought. This reproduction postcard is from the wonderful Darling & Company book of vintage Easter postcards and dates from the heyday of postcards and, alas in the US, of trains. The card has so many intriguing components; I'm not sure I'll be able to part with it.
