Call me a traditionalist, but I thought the clown with the horn on his car was an idiot.

Especially since he took up two parking spaces with his truck when he wasn't out bleating.

Isnt there a rule, if someone uses more than one parking spot they are offering their vehicle as a makeshift latrine for those in need?

I do recall this being a rule.

I agree about the horns, the gimmick wears thin fast, and based on the facts mentioned this guy didnt need the horns to be a pain, but they sure helped.

I never heard of railfest, sounds/looks like a WONDERFUL time....even if that famous guy wasnt there.

More photos/videos please.

Awesome thread and narrative here..... "I laugh long time"

A couple of friends returned the week prior from Altoona also. Even though it was my idea to go, I didn't end up going with them .

( I wish there was a "kick myself in the *** " smiley I could insert here)

 When is Railfest next year- is there a specific date ?

I asked the organisers the same question and was told "Nothing set in stone yet, but we're lookng at the second weekend in July."

I feel it might be worth a trek across the Atlantic???

He post over on the Yahoo PRR list and goes by the name of Ed K.

Here's the clown's signature, from the Railway Preservation News website forum:
