Lee, you sure are making my day! Thanks for all the BNSF!

Patrick, Now that looks like a great place to live, nice and quite so you can hear the trains better! I could see myself and a couple buddies in lawn chairs with a couple cold one just sitting there watching the trains go by!

Thanks so much Mike.  You are welcome to bring your lawn chair and watch trains anytime.  Patsburg is a great place to live!  At least in my imagination .. lol!  

FOR TODAY:  It's 1954 and the Railway Express Agency is going full tilt boogie.  Lots of parcels being transferred from boxcar to truck.  Otto the truck driver takes advantage of this break, while his trailer is being loaded by the loading crew.

Another day on the Free State Junction in Patsburg, MD!

Still like your very light  colored backround for the sky Patrick.

Joe ......sometimes I think Patrick has the guys working too hard .   It does look like they enjoy their ( play ) work though.

FOR TODAY: Remembering the perks of summertime!  All in good humor of course.IMG_2914

Good Humor founded in my hometown!

Edit:

I should have also added Good Humor  invented the "Popsicle Slick."  The owner's daughter asked her dad could he do something to prevent the ice cream from melting all over her hands.  Back then ice cream bars were square bars like todays Isley Klondike bars but with no coatings.  So he made the wood sticks in the bars!

Ron - Thanks for that bit of Good Humor history!!!  I never thought about who may have invented the popsicle stick and how its' invention came about.

Nice shot and scene Ted!  Are those Model-U figures... If so, you did an excellent paint job on them'...

Those are from Andian models.  I did paint them myself, but big learning curve.  They are pretty brittle so great care must be taken not to break them.  I lost my first one with a broken arm and leg plus the pick axe he was supposed to carry.
