Patriotic theme this week.....Cool!
I didn't think I had anything til I looked up on the shelf in the computer room.
I did these a couple of years ago.
First one was an inspiration from OCC's "POW/MIA" bike.
Second I did in 2003. Even a railroad can show its support.
Some Roanoke VA photos:
Shops at NS are leased to a company that builds cars.
This one is on the way to Saudi Araba,

Now with NS on them.
Big hump yard and shops in west Roanoke.
N&W caboose at O. Winston Link Museum.
Train watching from the museum.
Rusting switchers at VA. Scrape Metal.
Neat pictures Chief! That's a sad photo of those rusted switchers. Say, any idea what those odd looking silver tanks are in your 8th photo?
Good question. When I was shooting them, thought of sand. Looks like heavy duty lines going to them. CNG or compressed air???? Photos are stored in aux. harddrive. Will "hook up" and enlarge. Also will ask around.
Those are reasonable suggestions. Thanks. I'm intrigued by the smaller diameter of the tank bases.
I was thinking CNG or Propane. Just a guess though.
here are a few cars my dad and i dad this did, last summer.
Great Photo's Chief.

A very short KP&W local passes by the old water tower....
Stopping at a crossing to see a new tunnel moter on the range (413) I saw this bilboard for Uncle Lefty's Fireworks Warehouse.
Sounds like fun!
Great photos here. Nothing new from me.
Then dig up something old that looks good. We'll still like it.
First tunnel moter over the new bridge.
I'm stuck with my aunt's old mac this week, and I can't copy or paste anything, but I'll try.
EDIT: Well, that didn't work. How about a link so's ya'll can browse my photobucket album: www.packers1.tk
