    The engineer wasn't paying any attention! (Me!:eek: ) Jessica was calling my attention away from the running SW1. The cars came uncoupled at the cross track and the switcher ran into them. I caught it just in time before the coal was dumped! :eek:

    :eek: Andy:eek:

    Andy, I was heading back tuh the bunkhouse after a hard days work roundin up them steers. Figured Ah could do with a coffee tuh cut the dirt frum mah throte. It wus then Ah noticed a cut 'o cars parked on the crossin and saw one of them new fangled smokeless locos treadin it's way round the bend towards the crossin. Ah guess that thar engineer couldn't see the train on account o' him bein round the bend .... Ah thought tuh muself, "that's a helluva way tuh run a railroad". Anyways, Ah could see whut wuz about tuh happen, but that coffee shore wuz hankering at muh mind so Ah just left them RR guys tuh git on with whatever it wus they were a'doin.

    Like Ah said..... It's a helluva way tuh run a railroad!:D :D

    It's the first cornfield meet I ever saw a picture of..:) .

    When you start picking on three truck sidewinders, you're walking a "mighty fine line".

    That was so bad it was good , giggle, snort,chuckle........

    If I had the room and they made a three truck shay in N-scale I'd own one, Actualy I think I saw one on-line somewhere but it didn't look right for some reason and the price was outragous.

    No offense meant, couldn't resist the horrible pun.

    The only N scale shays I've seen were at the National Train show last July in St. louis. They were beautiful, they were brass, and they WERE EXPENSIVE !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Seeing as I model in Horribly Oversized scale,, is it just my ignHOrance, or is there really not a lot of freight car kits available in N scale?? All the hobby shops around here seem to have only RTR N scale equipment.

    No offence taken,I was actualy chuckling so hard it hurt,probly don't help that I'm so sunburned from fishing the last three days.The weathers been so nice I couldn't resist.

    I was a finish carpenter until a couple months ago,so the only way you could offend me is to realy realy insult my work.

    The shay I saw I think was from small scale logistics.It was kit form with or without running gear.Way too much for my wallet.
