Mornin', Night!

Shred! Waiting on tiptoes for your story entry. (Just kidding; I'm still in pajamas cause I'm home sick today, so I'm actually just sitting here listening to one of the Shepherditos practice the piano.) I'll reply to your PM in a bit - not ignoring you, just wanted to get the story contest entry done yesterday.

a reply to: Timely
Unfortunately not good health for me. Sitting at home from work with a throbbing head, a stuffed up nose, and a sore throat. Colds blow chunks.

Your avatar is awesome. Self portrait? You have wonderfully smooth skin. How'd ya get it to move?


a reply to: jacygirl
Mornin' jacygirl! Sophie came over to my place last night to scare away the possum. I didn't steal her, I swear! Sophie, the Mrs., and I all had a nice Belgian Saison. Sophie might have a bit of a hangover today, though. She was dancing on the chandelier.

a reply to: Gordi The Drummer
You got skunked in your haggis hunt? Maybe you need one of them haggis caller thingies. You know, like a duck call but for haggis. Bet you can find them on Amazon.

Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOM!
Do ya think that's loud enough, G?

G'mornin' Shred!

Coffee is one of the four food groups. The others being chocolate, pizza, and donuts I believe.

Hiya Timely! Sorry, I ended up going to bed and missed you when you posted.

Gordi, love the humor aimed at Tom. LOL

jacy, Morning Sunshine! Sounds like Sophie had a fun time with Shep.
Shred, still waiting for that story!

Shep, sorry you are sick today Hun! That is awesome that one of your sheperditos plays piano. So you can hang out in your jammies and listen to music today. I like to pick on Timely and his interesting avatar. You forgot pixie drinks in your list above. LOL

Going out with my Sister for lunch in a while. Friday will be lunch with my lovely friend Diane who just lost her Mom and Saturday I will have to be up early for her Mom's funeral. Busy days ahead. I think I shall sleep all day Thursday and Sunday.

This thing better at the very least make some sort of sense
I spent about thirty hours over the past two days fine tuning the rough draft.

I have deleted re-,worded, deleted, changed completely, releted, wait that's not a word.........

It is funny how close I am to the end yet if I don't come up with the right few sentences to tie it all together things just won't be the same...........

I have walked out on a limb and dove into deep water lol

I remain anxiously optimistic my friends
I would expect to see the entry within 72 hours.

Taking this so seriously has been totally therapeutic for me.

I hope you all have an excellent day.

I am really looking forward to sitting down a reading all the short stories for this contest too!

Yesterday marked a first for me and a couple of friends as we got to see our good friend Jesse Smith on his final run as an engineer to Russell, Kentucky. After thirty eight years of riding across the high iron between Russell, Kentucky and Clifton Forge, Virginia. It was time to hang 'em up for one final run along the Big Coal Subdivision. Sit back and enjoy the ride as we tag along for one final chase along the Big Coal and the Kanawha Subdivision.

Rounding the sweeping curve at Keith, West Virginia. Engineer Jesse Smith is seen bringling loaded coal train T612-01 west along the Big Coal Subdivision preparing to meet an eastbound empty coal train at Crown siding.


Making the run thourgh Seth, West Virginia after meeting an empty coal train at Crown siding. Jesse has this train well in hand as he pops out the engineers window. As for why he was leaning out the window. All you have to do is look at the photo below this one.



Managed to get a couple of other trains yesterday as well during the chase. Had to divert off from the chase to get this one as we had only got a message about it passing through Saint Albans, West Virginia while we were on the interstate. With a train consisting of tank cars full of corn syrup in tow. Canadian National 2622 leads train W270-05 through the Amtrak station as it passes through Charleston on its journey east.


The last train of the day and we had no idea it was coming until we heard it talking to the yard master at Russell, Kentucky. With another visitor from the "Great White North" in command. Eastbound mixed freight Q302, led by Canadian National 5604, is seen getting ready to work the east end of Russell Yard before swapping power and heading east.


Nice little surprise in the power line up before it got dropped off. One of a handful of Electro-Motive products still left in the "Yellow Nose 2," Yn2 as it's called, paint third out on this eastbound.




A parting shot of Jesse and the chase group all congregated at RU Cabin from yesterday.

I thought that was AKRR equipment at first! lol....
Have I told you that before?

I used to work for the Alaska railroad as a brakeman and hostler.

I have always referred the experience as another world. It was a blast.

I feel like I already told you but I forgot lol....

Hello everyone.
Thanks for the nice birthday wishes.
And thank you Night Star for your kindness and the thread.
What a day I had.
Let me put it this way.
The neighbors ended up knocking on the door.
Not because of the noise.
They were checking to see if I was alive because of the quiet.

The big event for me yesterday was going to Walmart to return shoes that were too small. (True. lol)
I did spend a lot of time thanking friends on Facebook.
(I don't know who they are.)
hey if anyone wants to friend me on facebook here is my profile link:
My Facebook
I'll unlock friend request for today. (Big deal. LOL)

I honestly don't know if that link will work because I've got my profile so locked down.
send me a friend request if you'd like.
I don't post any political stuff so that could be refreshing.
No I use facebook the way God intended it.
It's all about ME ME ME.
Well it is. LOL

Thanks again for the well wishes.

If you did tell me before, I forgot as well!!


My friend started out as a car hostler at Russell Yard and worked his way up over the years. It is another worldly experience from what others have told me over the past few years or so.

a reply to: Martin75

Hey Jess love!!
We had came up with the idea of chasing him one last time a couple weeks ago when he told us that he was retiring. Yesterday at 4 in the morning just so happened to be the start of that day. Meant no sleep for me and a couple of friends but we were fine with it. We tried to get to a location that he suggested to us but we couldn't find it.

a reply to: PrairieShepherd

Thanks Shep!
We had the idea for a couple of weeks to do it. Yesterday made the opportune time to do it even though none of us got any sleep the night before. He told us afterwards before we went to lunch that, "For it being my last run to Russell. This was one of the best times I've had out here with all of you guys chasing."

Tom, I added you as a friend. Left you a message there saying I was Night Star.

Shred, don't stress, just write the damned story! Sheesh, you writers are so hard on yourselves. LOL

Chooch, I think it's wonderful that you were there for your friend on his last run.

Hello Jess and Gordi! Should be leaving any minute, I hope. Starving here!

MamaShred sent us the webcam footage, that's how we knew.

It's OK, Shred, I know a couple techniques.

Hello, my Lovelies,

Hope all is well with you today. I have missed you & thank you for your thoughts, prayers, good vibes & pixie dust these past couple of weeks. Be assured BigBurgh was a dependable messenger for you all.

I have returned victorious after being sequestered in the hospital a bit longer than expected but I am now released. Granted, I'm released girdled & leashed but happy to be home none the less. Now if my back would quit hurting, that would be lovely.

Off to seek some hot chocolate.... Thank you again for all your good wishes.
