After getting a heads-up about storage cars coming in on the NWP, I quickly mobilized to go get them. Seen here, GP9 #1922 does the honors of pulling the 47 ...

Could  be  that  State  Route 37 will be a  4-lane freeway prior to re-opening of  NWP and SMART if both are embargoed by  FRA.   Maybe  Chad was  trying  to embargo my comments. Won't work, I am still here and my computer still functioning.

Where did you get that information?  This is not April 1.

FRA closed everything west of Napa Steven. Maybe years before anything runs again

No videos this year--2017--of NWP or SMART?  I keep looking for new videos. Nothing happening on either NWP or SMART.

Most of the pro-storage comments seem to be coming from  Donald Duck supporters.  The antis are from  the enviro-human lovers.  Make a choice. vote for tanks being stored (enviro-hunanoids or use them tanks ( not tankers but real honest-to-goodness tanks that haven't seen much action since either WW2 or the Korean conflict. Need to test our newest assault tanks  by the Donald Duck-ite  person who would rather act than think then act.  I will not rail any further. You can keep track (4 ft.8-1/4 in)

of my keeping my pledge if not my vow. I have vowed never to make another vow. I vow that is true.

Reading the Press Democrat article of Sept. 26th, you would think that NWP parked those 80 cars right next to a hospital, orphanage, or elementary school.  What a bunch of crybabies.  The drone video clearly shows how isolated those cars are.  I can't imagine a safer location anywhere in the Bay Area.  However, with the unwanted publicity, there may be an opportunity for environmental terrorists to wreak havoc.  If that happens, SMART will largely be to blame.

I know what folks mean by ugly comments. I  would never use obscene language foul or religiously offensive. Ugly comments?  If one doesn't see humor where it is intended and in most of my posts the general gist is humorous. I also have not been critical of anybodys posts only in jest would I  evaluate photos. If one sees the jest in an evaluation of posted photo but instead reads is a serious criticism that I can not help. . Foe example in the above video I could say the camera angle was both too low and about 9 to feet too much to right. A more effective angle would be about 5 feet higher and maybe 10 feet to left  centering the camera on nose of loco.   One could see that as criticism  or as humor as intended.  Railfans are not always the most humorous about trains/photography.

Humor is hard/impossible with text. I've tried.

Who needs dispatch anyway, we can steer out of each other's way!

Steven Richard Bell had some funny comments. No drama just funny. I have steered those wheels myself!
