What on earth are the top two loads?


Hmm... looks like you
can make ANYTHING
for N scale and call it
a flatcar load...


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!"

@nsbob beat me to it but I typed this already so hey  :D

Parts for Wind turbines, the larger parts are the head containing the turbine and the smaller parts are what the blades attach to.

Photo taken 10 minutes ago:



Stunned... well, maybe not, but surprised... that there is still stuff running around in WC paint. It was on the local, my guess being assigned here awaiting its turn in the paint shop.

More likely its turn to be scrapped... besides 3010 as far as I know none of the WC GP40's got black and red...

Fun Fact, The 3000's are mostly ex Western Pacific Units! but 3018 appeared to be ex B&O put together from spares lol

Interesting. We'll see. CN's paint shops are in our city, with little other reason for it to be here. We don't have a dead line, and I haven't yet seen any indications of CN having a relationship with the local breaker yard, National Railway Equipment. That photo was on its way back from running a transfer cut to the BNSF (the NRE connection), so if it wasn't dropped off with the transfer it must be sticking around.
