"Actually, the covers were for the removed Mars light, and the RED emergency light which was right above the Mars light. They were NOT required, as Mr Mr Sebastian stated, but were an option for individual Railroads. Southern Pacific removed most of…"

"Thanks Tony, I've often wondered about the reason of that color thing, also noticed it on some Navy ship interiors as well.  Would make sense on the DOT Rotaries we used, they only creep along while working the zones and I could…"

"It's not just the Coast Guard that is bored and isolated. Even when you're at war, you spend 95% of the time standing around waiting for something to happen! (Granted, the other 5% is $#!+ in your pants pure terror). Being in the middle of…"

After retirement still into trains and planes.

      I had to retire after 34+ years with the SP/UP bacause of a back injury in 2010. I'm still modeling SP in HO . I have also been maintianing an F-4 Phantom II at our local Air Museum for the past 18 plus years. Before the Railroad I was in the  Air Force and worked the F-4 and F-105s for 6 years.

      Trains have always been in my soul and with the help and support of some great friends I manage to go on in a smaller scale now.
