The trio recorded the album Nadie sale vivo de aquí in 1989 with a number of guest musicians, which obtained the nomination of Best Record of the Year.

Washington's Tomb (United States Capitol)

Washington's Tomb is an empty burial chamber two stories directly below the Rotunda of the United States Capitol building. It was included in the original design of the building by William Thornton and intended to entomb the body of George Washington, the first President of the United States; the original design of the rotunda, the Crypt beneath it, included a central glass floor allowing the public to view Washington's Tomb two floors below, but this was never implemented. When Washington died in 1799, the Capitol was still under construction. Both houses of Congress passed a resolution calling for Washington to be entombed in the Capitol upon its completion. Martha Washington agreed to the plan despite the presence in her husband's will of a provision that he be buried at Mount Vernon. However, the original resolution was never carried out due to disputes over the specific design and cost of the tomb and the body was placed in a temporary tomb at Mount Vernon. Congress again attempted to resolve these issues in 1800, 1816, 1824, 1829, when the Architect of the Capitol prepared plans for the tomb in anticipation of the approaching centennial of Washington's birth.

Congress renewed its call to transfer the body to the Capitol in 1830, after an attempt to steal Washington's head in which the Mount Vernon tomb was vandalized and several of Washington's relatives' corpses desecrated in 1830, but the current owner of the property, John Washington, decided to build a new, more secure tomb on the site instead. The Lincoln Catafalque was stored and exhibited in the tomb, it is kept, at present, in a specially constructed display area in the Exhibition Hall of the Capitol Visitor Center.

Bare Lane railway station

Bare Lane railway station serves the village of Bare, a suburb of Morecambe in Lancashire, England. It is located on the Morecambe Branch Line from Lancaster to Heysham Port and was opened by the London and North Western Railway in 1864. A level crossing with the public highway known as Bare Lane exists to the west of the station, which until was controlled by the adjacent Bare Lane signal box, a fringe cabin to the Preston PSB Area; this box was closed on 8 December 2012, when the signalling equipment was renewed by Network Rail and control of the crossing switched to CCTV and transferred to Preston power box. The old station building on the platform is now a private dwelling, it was auctioned to the public, was featured on the BBC programme Homes Under the Hammer, a show about buildings which are auctioned to the public and redeveloped. Although the station has two side platforms, the track layout through it is not the conventional double track used on most main & secondary routes, but two independent bi-directional single lines.

Platform 1 serves the Up & Down Morecambe line, whilst platform 2 handles trains on what is now the Up & Down Heysham line. The latter is connected to the now-single track branch down to Heysham Port at Holt Bank Junction, with the junction points operated from a ground frame worked by the train crew; the two lines converge east of the station, but immediately split into the single line curves toward Hest Bank and towards Lancaster. This layout dates from the closure of the former terminus at Morecambe Promenade and its associated signal box in February 1994, with Bare Lane signal box taking over control of all signalling on the line thereafter; as mentioned above however, it was closed in December 2012. The structure remained intact for another year and had been used for several months by Northern staff as a manned help point for travellers due to the absence of digital passenger information screens at the station, it was demolished in January 2014 after the PIS screens were installed and brought into use.

The station is unstaffed and had no ticket facilities of any kind until - Northern has now installed one as part of a programme of station improvements in the area. Waiting shelters are provided and both platforms have step-free access; the station is served by Northern Trains local services, which operate as a regular Lancaster-Morecambe shuttle. One return service throughout the week is extended to and from Heysham Port to meet the daily ferry to the Isle of Man. There are a few longer-distance services from Morecambe to Skipton and Leeds via the Leeds to Morecambe Line. In addition, for many years the last train each weekday evening was a First TransPennine Express service from Windermere, which diverted from its route to Barrow-in-Furness; this service called at Lancaster, Bare Lane and Morecambe, before reversing, calling at Bare Lane again rejoining the West Coast Main Line and continuing via Carnforth thus avoiding the 1m 7ch section of the WCML between Hest Bank South Junction and Hest Bank North Junction.

This was the only scheduled service to use the original 1864 curve towards Hest Bank and as such functioned as a Parliamentary train to avoid the need for formal closure proceedings for this short stretch of line. In the present timetable, just one early a.m Lancaster to Morecambe via Carnforth train takes this route to meet the TOC's franchise obligations.
