All Aboard...

So, tell me, have you been riding the rails again? I have another question if that’s okay? Do you set up an elaborate train set around your Christmas tree every year? My father in law does, and it takes up the entire living room, and goes into the dining room and takes that whole area up too. The kids always loved playing with Grandpas trains.

Actually, no I haven't been riding the rails again but I did have a 'few' extra trains roll by here for about a month. I have never set anything up going around the CHristmas tree.

I got a few more that I will post in the next few days as I get them done. Especially, with the way I caught the E606-28 and train #50 (Amtrak's eastbound Cardinal)going by here yesterday.

They're some cool pics just from an artistic view, do you mind if I ask why you seem to like trains so much?
Is it because you live right next to the tracks or something???

To be honest with you Chris, my dad was the same way when he was little. Quite frankly, he's still the same way about them. He's liked trains ever since he was little also.

Holy crapola!! I just noticed that also, which is kind of surprising considered I'm the one that took the picture of the friggin' thing.
I do hope and pray that it was a deer, and not a person, that met the plow.

I like your pictures gimmefootball400. I think it is nice that you have an interest in locomotives or whatever they are called. I know some people that are buffs and I always woundered why.

I guess you can't judge anothers interest or love because you are not that person and you think differently.

I like that you titled this, "I Kept My Promise!!!" I feel that in this dishonest world we live in, it is releiving to see a person that stands strong against their word.

All the people that have worked with me know that I never lie and always keep my promises. I have no time in my life for B.S. crap! I'm straight forward, because that is the best way to communicate. If you are spending all your time trying to figure out what is true or not, that person is not even worth talking to. Arguing is counterproductive and I never engaged in it.

Anyway, it would be nice for you to let us get to know you by telling us how you began your interest in locomotives if you remember.
