First generation power, second generation power, and whatever-the-heck-number generation the SD70ACe is: Ed's Law strikes again.

This is what the Indiana Northeastern sent me today. I'm really enjoying catching all this big power on such a small short line.

As much as I hate vandalism, I have to say you did an outstanding job tagging that caboose!


Hmm... could you do my
living room next...?


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

Ed's law??

You mean like using a dash 9 for local switching?

Right before the line back in home in Aiken was leased out to a shortline group, Dash-8's had worked their way into the rotation with the various EMD Geeps which would get assigned to the branch.

Mike, very nicely done!

Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!
