Re: Prospect Of Building An Exscursion Rail Road

Ask Fred Keppner. He has a lot of equipment here in Oregon rusting and rotting away. A total shame.

Re: German roundhouse fire in Nuremberg BW West

Sandy Mitchell has posted some photos on RYPn. This looks like a real disaster for German (well, all) railfans. :cry:

Re: NKP 765 Roll-Out

Rich, after hearing the news of 765's steam-up, I dug out my old Pentrex "Huntington '91" tape and drooled all over the coffee table watching (again) the 765 and 1225 running side-by-side and double-heading. I know the 1225 organization likes to stay close to home, but how about the 765 making an ap...

Re: Anti-graffiti coating??

Mark, how about frame-mounted surplus 50 cal machine guns? They would not only deter grafiti-ites but eliminate them too. Aw, gee, I'm cruel aren't I? :roll:

Re: The 261 trips this weekend. Things that don't really mat

Mark, you have done it again with your prose. I wanted to comment on your hostler thread, and figured you wouldn't see it. Now that you're home, great summary. If you get out here to the northwest we will find a way to get you a grand tour of the roundhouse and the beasts that dwell there. On a simi...

Re: New Website

Hi Junkman, I looked at your new forum and don't see anything there. Is it so important that you put it on here twice in the same day? Just asking. The theme is rustrails. Do you want us to post something about abandoned and therefore rusty rail lines? :?:

Re: EBT #15 Returns for the 2005 Spectacular

ebtrr, does that mean that the 14 and 15 just might run a double header before the season is over? There have been so many this year. Maybe a record will be set? :D

Re: Milw 261 heading to Kansas City

Don, thanks for the latest update. Hope you, Ed and Mark all make it home tonight. Sounds like there was some pretty slow running on the IC&E. I'm sure you all made a lot of people in Kansas City very happy. :wink:

Re: Milw 261 heading to Kansas City

Hi Don, and thanks for the update. The cars that are going to return with you guys to Minneapolis, are they some new purchases that Steve made, or private varnish for the October excursions?

Re: Milw 261 heading to Kansas City

Man, am I excited. Mark D called from the train and said they were just outside of Kansas City, and had the Kansas City Southern business train in sight in the yard, two F units and three cars. Tomorrow will make some sort of official arrival to the Union Station with media coverage. I sure wish I c...

Re: Discussion Of History Of ES&NA Railway

Hi Junk Man. I for one have never heard of the ES&NA Railway, and I am an old man. You have said that you are 13. You must have a little more patience with us old folks. Sometimes we forget the things we did when your age. Do you know anything about the P&LE? If so, would you tell me about t...
