    A very nice shot Tyson.. no fingers???? what happend:D

    Lead foot fast Lad??;) ;)
    Love ya lay out Tyson.
  3. No Fingers Nolan? Hell, I would've sworn that was Elroy McGinty, judgin' from the back. All them McGinty boys look the same from the back, an' there ain't no mistaken' 'em neither. He's kin to them McGinty boys what work for the Osage Valley over in Missouri, ya see.

    But if you say it's No Fingers, I guess I'll have to trust your powers of observation. You're closer to the scene than I am anyways.... :D :D :D :D

    Great mini-scene, Tyson!;)

    In the old days before things like automatic couplers and cut levers, etc. if you saw a brakeman that had all his fingers you knew he couldn't have been hired all that long ago! :D

    Actually Val that's a cross on the roof of a church in front of the hill, but blocked out by the trees at this angle. Casey he might be related to the McGinty clan as no one around here will claim him! :D :D :D

    Neat Ty! Dunno all my newer LPB's by name yet. They have been so well behaved, I've authorized recreation and music during off hours, but absolutely no alcohol at any time for them. Rots their little plastic brains. I didn't think to count their fingers. Can you see N scale fingers? Well, you'll get to meet some soon, I'm sure, with the mini-scene contest.:D :D :D Rock on Ty.

    I don't know how he hangs on at work, but I like the way he doesn't hang on to the bottle, he overpours the bourbon, and gives up after the second ice cube !!! My kind of bartender. :D :D
