WOW, what a week! It started off as a pretty slow morning for SwitcherSaturday, then I go off to the Navy football game and wham-o, you guys post a ton of great pictures, videos, and comments!
Tom (MNCW): Did you post a picture of non-Steam? huh??? :-)
rockstars1989: Great picture! I hope the team enjoyed their beer post-shift!
DaveP: No worries on being late with the homework this time, but next time you might get detention! :-)
MOPAC: This might be the first flyer to join SwitcherSaturday, that switcher looks awesome!
CBS072: Great pictures, I always like pictures taken from that angle!
SilverLake: The Amtrak 80 tonners look like beasts! We're all looking forward to seeing what you come up with for your next layout!
Also, thanks for pointing out the Western Maryland thing, I'm still a bit of a newbie (aka knucklehead aka moron) that I really did think Chessie = "Chesapeake & Ohio". However I now know (according to the all knowing WikiPedia) that:
Chessie = "Chesapeake & Ohio" + "Baltimore & Ohio" + "Western Maryland" + several smaller carriers
And the fact that my caboose is marked with WM I now know it would have been one of the Western Maryland cabooses of Chessie. So, had you not nitpicked I likely wouldn't have learned all this for a long time, so thanks!
Also, the French car is pretty cool, apparently there is one in the B&O museum in Baltimore, so next I go I'll take some pics and post.
mike.caruso: Hey Mike, someone needs to crack the whip on those construction zone guys!
bob2: That Flyer really is nice, agreed agreed agreed...
taycotrains: That seems like a very good buy at $50, it's going to look nice on those fancy shelves I see in the background of that picture! Your layout looks impressive from this angle, I'm going to have to search around to see any other pictures you might have posted over the years of it.
Bill T: that's a sharp looking vulcan you have there! Great picture!
Steamer: These pictures you post each week are incredible, it's almost like you're sharing our heritage with us each week, very very cool!
Mike CT: I need to go do some trainspotting one of these weekends, mine is going to be called SwitcherSpotting though!
joeyA: Late homework is better than no homework for sure! :-)
Mark Boyce: WOW, that #315 looks great!!! Congrats on the new arrival! B/T/W, I love that little green Frankenstein guy you have in your layout! I like the whole layout, but that little green guy gives is an extra touch!
trumptrain: "Maryland in the House"!!! That Canton switcher paint scheme is awesome! Great picture!
pittsburghrailfan: It looks like you guys have fun at that club! I have one of those K-Line A5's and I like it very much, except for some reason the tender pops off once in a while around my switches, something I need to look at.
Again what a great week! I bet we hear back from "Laming" at some point, showing off those fancy little switchers he picked up and posted about in last week's SWSat.
If anyone else out there wants to join in the fun, feel free to keep posting on this thread until next Saturday! I usually have this thing rolling by 8 or 9 am eastern time each week, and if I don't wake up or post by 9am for some reason one of the other "regulars" can pick up the torch and start the thread.
All the best and enjoy the rest of your weekend...Rich Murnane
