Covered Hoppers

Post by jett37 » Sat Dec 06, 2014 3:12 pm

With the recent record breaking Corn harvest the Fisher Grain on the Albany and Missinewa Valley was delighted the D&E and AMV hoppers showed up on their siding at 3:45 pm today. Not sure any one will be around on Sunday so it will probably late Monday when they will be picked up by one of the locals. :D

D&E - AMV hoppers on their way to Fisher Grain Saturday 12-5-14 2:50 pm. :wink:

A few of the things I was impressed with Saturday. No particular order,
1. the Wind Mill I purchased for the farm on the AMV. As small as it is, it turns, amazing to me.
2. The size of the N scale layouts on display.
3. Mikes breakfast. In the past he would have biscuits and gravy, three pan cakes, hash browns, sausage links, toast and coffee. This time it was a bowl of oats and coffee. WOW..
4.Chads, cell phone projecting that locomotive photo on the wall for us to see. Modern technology. Yep, I’m impressed. :shock:
