Without mirrors he couldn't see the wood chips flyin' out the back, so who cares. Silly him, he couldn't see the H/way patrol either.

Maybe not exactly a SWITCHER, but...

...a coke shunt, to be exact! Stays coupled to the same [quench] car for days at a time, moving loads of hot coke from the ovens to the quench tower, then emptying the cooled coke into the coke wharf.

Karl, does that thing look familiar...?:D

It's a dummy; I don't see any point in putting in a motor & decoder on something that would only move a maximum of 3ft in either direction.

I hate having just one of a model too, unless the prototype RR only has 1 of it, such as MRL only has 1 genuine SD40-2 and 1 GP40 (now being rebuilt), then the unique/rarity "thing" takes over. A real affliction.

Has anyone heard from Jerome Wheeler since 2012?
I talked to him a week ago and he is fine, kind of taking a break from trains and doing other stuff that is keeping him quite busy so thats pretty much it, but he is alive and well.
