Open House

Crowd was rather thin Saturday night. 765 was steamin' nicely, but we didn't get to see her move. Lots of smoke over Jefferson Pk last night. Too soon it will all be over.

Global III

Thanks Micheal. I probably will not venture out there. Let us know if you hear any more about the BNSF expansion. I've heard that the trend is to get the T.T. yards out of Chicago, neighbors don't like the noise.

Omni power

Hey Markedup, be careful that they don't see you when you prowl around the scrapyard. They might just take you on as their part-time "junk yard dog". (Bark loud enough, and they'll give you a free ride on the switcher.)

Lumber yard

I believe there was a link to that sight on the Indiana board. I remember looking at some of those pictures. BTW, IIRC, the lumber yard in Decatur was Arnold's Do It, not Adams lumber. It was on the EL mainline.
