Gee,
Do I have to attend one of the "Executice Breakfasts" to defend myself??
I leave the area for a few days to go railfanning in Pennsylvania (Altoona & Horseshoe Curve), Maryland (Cumberland) and West Virginia (Grafton, Keyser, Phillipi, Romney, Elkins and points further) and I get home and check the wesb site and Mr. Michael the Trucker is on my case!!
Guess I'll have to travel alone since JW can't get permission to leave Venedocia, or maybe he can't find his way out... Must be awful to be on house arrest from mama! Just kidding.
If you slackers decide to cancel or change locations in the morning, let me know so I can plan ahead.
Hope to see you tomorrow!!!

Hey Chuckie how did you find all those places? You must have taken the bus to get around cause it is hard to drive and eat donuts at the same time.

I'm still waiting on slide night at Mikey's that he has talked about for quite awhile.Oh well time to head to North Carolina for awhile.

JW,
At my age you learn to multi-task, and I'm pretty good at it.
I can walk, sneeze, cough, whistle, wink, fart, watch trains and eat donuts, all at the same time. :D
Have fun in NC and tell the kids I said "Hi"!

When,where,and are you going to be at the next breakfast? I suppose you will wait until I go to North Carolina to have it.

Back last year when you were supposed to come up here I changed it back to March 07, 2009. You can find this topic in the Suggestion box "Railfan Get together Poll".

I know your big brother Chunky asked me if I will buy gift certificates for you and him since you are going down to see the kin folks. If you cannot make it this time then I guess you are SOL

Well Mike we did come up there for lunch as we said we were going to(per phone call). Only thing we saw was horse crap all over the roads and NO trains. If we don't get there it won't be SOL but LOS.

Thanks Mike M for the breakfast and all who came. Enjoyed the chit chat and the food. The Eat N House was a good choice. The NS made it interesting also by sending twelve trains between 8:30 AM and 12:30 PM. Especially liked the meet of the two east bounds. One from the Wabash side and the other from the LS. Glad I was able to get it on Video.

Since when did NS start using black numberboards? This is the second ex Conrail repaint I've seen this way so far.
