Day 2, traveling through North Dakota

Ok, we now have 2 nights spent on train. Sleeping ok but hard to get comfortable. Pretty scenery, now going through farm and lake areas of North Dakota. Met Clinton, from Minot North Dakota, in the observation car. Oil worker. Travelling from Fargo, family lives in LA. Says ND is 2nd largest oil producing state behind Texas, and Rugby is the geographic center of North America. So, Rugby ND has the 3rd largest concentration of nuclear missiles in the world, as its location is the hardest to send a missile to.
