You really have to wonder why anyone would have thought shipping cars in this manner was a good idea.

I was wondering what the cow dung was for, but now I think I do. Did you stop at the hydroponic store before you picked up your sh@! or were you going to do that on the way home?
I have NO idea what you are talking about.  ::) This was actually for his organic gardening plot at his dad's house...no, really.

I hope they have a good spam filter.

The phrase "N scale" would be a good place to start.

The head of the Federal Railroad Administration for the Southeast in the 1980's-1990's was named Chris Clune .  The CEO of Exactrail is also named Chris Clune. Same guy, or maybe his son? He was at my table at several meetings, but we only discussed the real thing, not models.

I was just looking up the auto plant in Lordstown, OH and saw they made Vegas. I looked up Vegas and find they were all built in Lordstown:

So it is safe to assume all these photos of Vert-i-packs being loaded were taken 5 miles from me. The trains would of been shipped out on the B&O (or whatever it was in 70's)

Who knew.

The Pennsy got most of the Vega traffic out of Lordstown when the plant opened. As a matter of fact, PRR bought a 10 foot wide "spite strip" of land from a farmer across the highway from the plant site to keep the B&O out of there. But GM told PRR either it let the B&O in or the plant would not be built.

Currently Chevy Cobalts and Pontiac G5s. Tooling up now for the Chevy Cruze in 2010. Their first car was a white 1966 4 door impala. The newspaper I work for bought and gave it away.

Wont they be building the susperstructure of the Volt too? From what I understand the Volt is built on the Cruze lines then shipped for final battery/motor instalation.

Who knows.  They built the cobalt only there first then about a year later started up the G5's. All I here on the news is CRUZE CRUZE CRUZE, it's gonna save the world. It is supposed to get like 45 MPG by using a turbo. They already build it in Europe.
