Steve, I said-"Well, since I appear to be the instigator in this, I am not w/out blame. I should have figured it'd get out of hand, so thanks for calling a stop to it, Steve. I too apologize if you were offended. I was merely stating my opinion, which I've formed on observations and life expirences over the last 21 years. My passion for the NWP took over, my blood started boiling over, and my emotions caused me to desend into a rant...I read somewhere online a saying that really fits right now-"Opinions are like butts; We all have one, and we all think everyone else's stinks!" Shoot, I should have known things would start getting political. So lets try to put it behind us, bury the hatchet, so to speak, and move on...Steve, I consider you a valuable member of this site, and I'd hate to see you go. Again, if I offended you in any way, I'm sorry. Let's agree to disagree on politics, and focus on our love of the NWP.
Sincerely, Respectfully, and Humbled,
Zachary M. Toler"
I also said-"You know, I think one reason stuff like this gets said is because people (myself included) can hide behind a profile photo, and say anything, anonymusly. If more people were acting like we were talking face to face, things would likely stay civilized...I never intended to stir up the fecal material like this, into the feces storm that happened...
Covering my nose and looking for an umbrela,
Zachary M. Toler"
I also said this-"...I was a bit harsh, however, some of those comments that folowed were down right mean. I'm not responsible for other's opinions, but my actions were the catylist that started it, so, for that I'm sorry. I'm ready to move on though, and I'll do my damnedest to not spout off like that in such a manner, that would encourage others to be so disrespectful..." and so with my final apology on this, I hope you aren't mad at me, Steve.
Good to hear from you. I will relay your interest to my father, of course. Thanks again for the book. I have already read it, cover to cover. If able to, I will help when I can. The day was thoroughly enjoyed by both of us.
awesome, unfortuntily that is the day of my Birthday party, and i will be unable to make it. I will try anouther time though, i'm entering a online contest about modeling a piece of equipment from a long lost railroad that is really hard to find resurch on. Thanks!
after looking at the pictures, i was wondering where i might be able to find this caboose if it still is in the Bay Area....
also, do you know if its a Mainline, branch line or narrow guage caboose? I never got a good look at the car so excuse me if it is stated..
Thanks for the link I will check it out later today.
I have started a Blog Post on the difficulties I have been having with internet connections, which I am going to restrict to there. Please go and check it out!
I finally caught up with your comment that had the click 'HERE' is in. I am going look at the pics some more.
I hope it is a wet year for yall or things could really get bad in that region. As far as clandestine opinions and water concerns are concerned, dont they go all the way to Colarado and north right into Canada?
Let us know how it goes today with the GREAT COVER UP OF CABOOSE # 1. I will be most interested!
Thats a bummer, no way to get into a shop? You guys get rain there? not in a drought? Hope so from what I have seen (my window is KTLA) it seems so dry there all the time when it is not burning up. I believe LA is some what south of you if I understand it right?
got to run,
Havent heard from you for a while. Im having trouble commenting from my phone, so you might have to be patient for me to get back to you. Did you have a work session last weekend? This weekend? Im going to the group page here shortly, might have something more there.
Hi Steve, I am surprise that the headend and cars are not Japan tech, who makes it do you know? The Japanese Bullet trains do 100s of km/hr. I joined Psrcab1 group on Yahoo by clicking on what you left me, thank you I appreciate that kindness alot. I am slowly gettin there.
I sure like your avatar photo. Is the the latest Shin (I will just butcher it if I try to spell it), it looks like it if Im not mistaken. I watch alot Japan TV (no I dont speak or read Japanese, but I recognise various word if in Roman letters) and enjoy all the various vinettes they have especially the SL and other train ones. They have been broadcasting alot of them all year. It is my most favourate TV channel. I record all the shows on my DVR, always have a long list. Im a huge fan of Japanese Sumo as well, almost tournement time. At present that is my only Google Alert Japan/Sumo, its gushing.
I would like to find an online pic of a CNR NW3 for my avatar. I have a photo of one that actual operatedin Saskatoon, Sask., Ca, might take a cellphone picture of it?
I am going to look at what you recommend now 'on my page'. Im at the library.
Definitely, 'SHE', is beautiful I believe, and thoughts of Her brings a great big smile to my face. You should see some of the finely decorated and painted brass models I have seen of Her, mostly HO. Vancouver, very possible, the 2 clubs have been known to swap back and forth between Vancouver and Edmonton on the CNR Yellow Head route. I will try looking at your pics but might have to wait till Monday, I dont have my laptop yet. Right now I am on a S.E. W760a cellphone using Opera Mini browser on a Java OS. It makes a vary powerful little 'palmtop'.

Ps. Steve got my mistake sorted out, I need to learn some how. I know youve already read this.
Thank you for the words Steve.
Re: Royal Hudson CN 6060
I have not seen HER for a number of years myself. She does have a wonderfull history and I believe is still resident in Edmonton, AB, Ca.
I look forward to learning more about the NWPRR, area and history.
