Rich, the two articles are interesting, thanks for posting. Looks like the track side of "precision railroading" in Europe.The rails are set in concrete
You didn't miss anything, Willie, I just haven't mentioned it. The wife has had issue's with her ankle since she sprained it in the spring. The type of work she does complicated healing, so the Doc decided to cast her up and order her off work for 3 weeks. Give the ankle time to loose the 'water' and heal properly. She has good benefits that will pay her short term disability for that time.Guy - Did I miss something regarding the cast on your wife's leg? Best wishes for her recovery.
I finally got a photo of the bridge with engines, Sherrel. Sadly, the engines were going in; not coming out. One would notice, as the engine lights arn't on in the rear:GUY -- love the bridge! Keep trying to get a pic with the loco about 1/4 coming out?
Sorry about that. You wont hear from my saw for the rest of the day. I just finished up cutting up the last tree from the driveway this morning. Still no power here and the alabama power website says "evaluating" when we pull up our address. I hope that all is well over your way.I love the sound of chain saws in the morning.
We moved out of Florida in 2008 to avoid these things. They seem to be following us, even several hundred miles from the nearest ocen.
I saw my one and only cattle guard when leaving the Badlands National Park in South Dakota when on a motorcycle rip out west on our Gold Wing.Good morning, I hope all are doing well! Looks like ol man winter has got a pretty good start in the upper portion of the states, and a lack of firewood continues in the lower portion......

My railroad pic for today is this livestock/vehicle deterrent on the Modoc line. This is the only place I have ever seen one of these. There is not one on the other side of the crossing , apparently this side only experienced trouble with animals/people.
Anybody else ever see one of these?
