The brush and tree limbs rubbing the sides of the GMTX 3105 and it's train is an FRA defect for sure.  I bet they were getting wheel slip running through that high grass and weeds as well. I hope that unit has plenty of sand. Where is the brush cutter and spray truck? It's not a good time running a train through stuff like that.

And as the sunset faded, I spoke to the faintest first starlight.
And I said next time, Next time, We'll get it right!

Wow. Talk about an idea whose time never came. Lookit' that tare weight! Containers doomed that setup. To be fair though, while containers have an extra advantage wrt railroad tare weight the opposite is true of trucks+containers. Stackable containers with truck tailer chassis under them are heavier than truck trailers. It's real easy to be overweight on the highway.

I had always heard of Seatrain, but never knew what was involved... absolutely fascinating. Thanks for sharing.

TRUMPTRAIN, What a spectacular view! No exaggeration. When I saw that photo of part of your layout, my mouth fell open, for real. And yes, that pun was intended - your modeling is "for real"!!

Brian, handing up orders is why my Grandad quit railroading. He was holding up an order hoop and was a bit too close so took a glancing blow to his shoulder from the cylinder as it came past. Hurt his shoulder and that was enough for him.

Whatthe….???!! ......could that man possibly have been doing under there that would have made any difference whatsoever. I mean, look at his - at anybody's - delicate hands (compared to tons of iron?metal!!!) And whoever sent him there to do that should have been arrested for reckless endangerment and for being a total fool.

I'm serious. It takes a great deal to get me ticked-off , but that endangerment of that poor worker is criminal. IMunHO.

I am trying to figure out what he is doing. I hope that break was set. If that jack would kick out that fellow will get his back broken. Besides how old is the poor old fellow looks to be in his seventies.  It is a very hard way to make a living , it must have been a dangerous life to live in those days.

I know where I have been, I know where I am at, I am hopeful I know where I am going.(The devil and God are talking it over).
