07/26/2021 00:58:14S-Trains[RoninID]See ya, bye!
07/26/2021 00:57:36S-Trains[fahrwud]As the actors say, it'll be alright on the night
07/26/2021 00:57:33S-Trains[RoninID]Well, signing off and hope to see you next week
07/26/2021 00:57:16S-Trains[RoninID]yes
07/26/2021 00:57:01S-Trains[fahrwud]Hope he gets an upgrade soon
07/26/2021 00:56:50S-Trains[RoninID]I just hope I'm doing things right by learning as much as I can ahead of time.
07/26/2021 00:56:15S-Trains[RoninID]yes it was, too bad David can't make it very often
07/26/2021 00:56:12S-Trains[fahrwud]Don't want you falling asleep on your new printer
07/26/2021 00:55:51S-Trains[fahrwud]Well, getting noddy here. Good to catch up, Ron.
07/26/2021 00:55:34S-Trains[RoninID]OK, looks like it is about time to call it quits tonight, eh?
07/26/2021 00:52:17S-Trains[fahrwud]As they said. Up with the pilots it's Star Wars. Back in their compartment it's Raiders of the Lost Ark
07/26/2021 00:51:33S-Trains[fahrwud]I saw the documentary. There's a bunch of flight engineers to handle the engines and fuel transfer.
07/26/2021 00:50:48S-Trains[fahrwud]Yes, big beast. Not sure it's in service any more
07/26/2021 00:50:27S-Trains[fahrwud]DMIR ran quad sets of ore jimmies with drwabars and limited the number of air gladhands - winter leakage
07/26/2021 00:49:14S-Trains[RoninID]quite the plane that Mars
07/26/2021 00:48:51S-Trains[fahrwud]Think the car ahead of the caboose is an air compressor for all those ore car brakes
07/26/2021 00:46:44S-Trains[fahrwud]2nd one is a bunch of old EMDs slogging it out on the Iron Range
07/26/2021 00:46:16S-Trains[fahrwud]1st video there is. aMartin Mars - you might have seen it out your way
07/26/2021 00:45:43S-Trains[fahrwud]
07/26/2021 00:45:35S-Trains[fahrwud]Best o luck, looking forward to the results
07/26/2021 00:44:47S-Trains[RoninID]but do have a temp spot for it on my workbench, big enough to do some test runs
07/26/2021 00:44:20S-Trains[fahrwud]
07/26/2021 00:44:13S-Trains[RoninID]I haven't done any drawing since the printer arrived so scratch July
07/26/2021 00:43:55S-Trains[RoninID]tonight
07/26/2021 00:43:50S-Trains[RoninID]Well, quite a chat tonigh
07/26/2021 00:43:25S-Trains[RoninID]we are fairly flat here, with grades to the east
07/26/2021 00:42:54S-Trains[RoninID]west
07/26/2021 00:42:48S-Trains[fahrwud]Not much mountain railroading around here. The Minnesota mining railroads could produce a string of roaring EMDs once in a while
07/26/2021 00:42:48S-Trains[RoninID]trains line up for refueling farther wet
07/26/2021 00:42:30S-Trains[RoninID]normally all heads display red
07/26/2021 00:41:59S-Trains[RoninID]also from my deck, kewl
07/26/2021 00:41:53S-Trains[fahrwud]That was a treat
07/26/2021 00:41:48S-Trains[RoninID]verified the other night when one of the heads displayed flashing yellow
07/26/2021 00:41:26S-Trains[RoninID]I've been seeing what I thought might be a signal bridge on the UP in the distance toward town
07/26/2021 00:40:51S-Trains[RoninID]nice to be present once in awhile
07/26/2021 00:40:19S-Trains[RoninID]wow
07/26/2021 00:40:17S-Trains[RoninID]when the signal cleared, the roar was deafening and the ground shook while they got under way
07/26/2021 00:39:42S-Trains[RoninID]then there was the time a freight with 5 SD units on the point and a batch mid train had to stop on the grade west of Helena MT
07/26/2021 00:39:01S-Trains[fahrwud]Probably Canadian 215s or 415s - those things are everywhere
07/26/2021 00:38:22S-Trains[RoninID]sometimes a DC-10
07/26/2021 00:38:18S-Trains[fahrwud]Similar feeling with those thundering overhead
07/26/2021 00:38:14S-Trains[RoninID]I'm not sure what we are using these days
07/26/2021 00:37:47S-Trains[fahrwud]Back in the eighties there was a Canadian forest fire outfit still flying Catalinas as water-bombers
07/26/2021 00:36:54S-Trains[fahrwud]Great stuff
07/26/2021 00:36:31S-Trains[RoninID]and still have the $800!
07/26/2021 00:36:17S-Trains[RoninID]got my thrill standing on my deck watching it fly overhead
07/26/2021 00:36:11S-Trains[fahrwud]Our jaws were on the floor as a British Lancaster bomber taxied around the corner of the hangar in front of us
07/26/2021 00:35:25S-Trains[RoninID]have to have a lot of power to haul bombs
07/26/2021 00:35:16S-Trains[fahrwud]The terminal was right beside the aviation museum in Winnipeg
