Locomotive in the snow and a dumb word list

  Snow earlier this week in the Rocky Mountains provides an excellent backdrop for this photo, the Durango and Silverton RR is a narrow gauge road, the rails are 3 feet apart.  The trains operate on a 45.5 mile run in southern Colorado.
The most used word in Wikipedia for each state - click to enlarge
  If you notice the word "Dancers" in the State of North Dakota as the most used word, it's mis-leading.  In one small paragraph in a long article the word does appear more than three times while describing Native American Pow Wows.  What the reader should know is that the word "German(s)" is used many more times, as it relates to the origin of settlers.  Oh well.  And I just can't believe the word "peas" is the most used word in describing Washington State, but I didn't bother to check.
