Lol, I'm sure it's just a coincidence...but it's been awesome to see everyone again!
Hubby got a ride home tonight, so I wouldn't have to go and get him. I may log off soon to eat some soup.
It's been fun, and I will be back in the morning for a bit!
Hope everybody has a great night!

Hey Jacy, the place sure livened up since you came back! I haven't seen Gordi this much in a long time! LOL
.... GUILTY as charged your honor!
I cannot begin to describe how much I missed our Shedsis!
I was soooo worried.
I hate feeling helpless, and that's how I feel - when one of us is hurting, but is offline.
So, listen... LISTEN!
We ARE family here. If ANY of you have real life sh*t that needs dealing with...
There are good people here. People who care. People who can help.
There are good ears! and good hearts!
You don't have to feel isolated and alone. We have something special here. If you don't want to post in the open thread, then just message one of
the Shed regulars. They are a very special bunch. They will listen, they will care.
OK, it's getting late here, and I'm all.... sentimental!
Gordi, that was beautiful and so very true! Too many people feel that if they share bad stuff, they will bring us down or something. They keep things
inside and it festers and doesn't do anyone a damned bit of good. The one feeling down doesn't get lifted up and the one's left behind here in the
shed are left wondering and worrying. So to all our missing people and to anyone who visits our magical and loving realm, let it all hang out. We are
a truly loving, compassionate and inspiring group.
Got the chance to go down on two of my absolute favorite rail lines in the Tri-State area on Tuesday. Started it all off by stopping at Ironton, Ohio
and Ashland, Kentucky. Everything kicked off with myself and a friend of mine catching a short west bound manifest coming through Ironton, Ohio.
Shortly after we caught the manifest over at Ironton. We were off to Ashland to catch one or two over there. The only one we saw was a lite power move
heading west for the yard at Russell, Kentucky.
After getting done with shooting the lite power move and a track geometry train while down in Ashland. It was off to our usual spot at Kenova, WV to
get some more trains. While there were a few other trains that ran through and those will be uploaded whenever I get to it. Here are a of the trains
that we did see while there. First one is eastbound Norfolk Southern manifest #169 rolling over the CSX mainline as it heads towards Williamson, WV.
After that one had went by and got out of the way. It was eastbound train 188's turn to make a run east over the line to Williamson.
Once the two other manifests had moved on further down the line away from us. We were debating on where to go get something to eat at before heading
back home. As we were discussing on where to go and what to eat. We heard a train calling signals heading down the Big Sandy Subdivision just across
the river in Kentucky. Once we heard what the leader on the coal train was. We were on our way to the interstate without hesitation to see if we could
catch up and pass this coal train. I'm not going to mention how fast we were going on the interstate just to get ahead of it. Needless to say we got
ahead of it with time to set up a shot that we had saw about a week earlier.
The rest of the videos will be uploaded and posted in the order that they went by like the ones above whenever I get around to it.
That was great fun in the Shed last night.
I've finished work early today, and am working on some song candidates for BlonnaHooley-ing!!
Is that a word? YEP! Course it is.
I have also nicknamed followers of the band "BlonnaHooligans!"
Will that go down well I wonder?
Gimmie- Thanks for the videos. I love watching them. It brings back memories. My PawPaw also loved trains so most of my childhood was spent
wondering around the railways of Galax / Hillsville. I know I have had to have walked hundreds of miles of tracks. Then for a treat they would take
me to Tweetsie Railroad, hmmmm I wonder if that place is still open???
Godri- I LOVE "BlonnaHooligans!" and would be honored to be called that!
Jacy - Thanks so much for kicking this place into over drive
