Well hello there WalkInSilence, and thank you for the welcome. That picture is excellent - it was so chilly in my part of the world this morning I could use one of the parkas those shepherds are wearing! I think the best parts in that pic are the dim sun and the dog. There's just something noble about shepherds and sheep dogs - humble, dutiful protectors and guides.

Plus I have a great fondness for our canine friends - I think they sense it because they always get ridiculously excited around me.


Sorry to hear about the stress - I think you've come to the right place here, though!

That pace cannot be kept up ad infinitum; you just can't work people that hard. I've seen it attempted before and it inevitably led to losing the employee in bitter fashion. I'm glad you're taking a stand - you're a human, not a robot.

Well, at least I think you are!

Mac - that is a very cool video! The area where that mine is must be massive! I am used to the mines here in WV. Most of the time the area that you see is very small. Thanks so much for sharing!

It may also depend upon whether WalkInSilence is exempt or not. I put in something like 270 hours in a month once, and when I talked to HR about the pace we were all keeping, they pretty much shrugged and said, "You're FLSA exempt - there's nothing we can do. You agreed to a yearly salary for whatever work needed to be done for the year." I'm paraphrasing, but that was basically the response.

Now if WIS is hourly/FLSA-non-exempt, that's a completely different story.

No problem!
I created that 3d from just under 3000 photos.
Took a long time to create, but im sure it will wow people at the convention.

If you crack open Google Earth and put in these coordinates you can see the mines foot print:

Lat: 49° 9'32.14"N
Long: 89°37'21.88"W

Its a pretty large area

I think my neighbor (who is far more into rails than I can be at this stage of my life) said it has been 60 years since they ran steam on at least one of the legs the 261 will go on this weekend. I love the steam engines - there's just something classy and nostalgic about them.

I'll admit I have a little passion for steam as well........

Took this last year during Norfolk & Western 611's trips along its home rails between Radford, Virginia and Lynchburg, Virginia over July 4th weekend. Norfolk & Western "J" #611 is seen crawling up Christiansburg Grade as it passes through Shawsville, Virginia on its way to Radford, Virginia.


Making it's way east after departing Roanoke a few minutes earlier. The 611 is seen making its way to Lynchburg as it passes under a small one lane country road outside of Lowry.


Even though I got photos of it running along its home rails. It sounded much better on video!

@Shep. I didn't think of that. I haven't had any salaried jobs so it wasn't on My radar I guess. But that is a Very good point!! Thanx for that!!

I had a business trip out to Roanoke once and got to visit the VA Museum of Transportation where the J611 was. After that, I wanted to build a model railway with it!

Coolest steam loco ever.
