@Willllburrrr how many more years until pin pulling time?
Pulled it 12/2021.. miss the guys the guys a lot, miss driving them once in awhile but the computer was doing a lot of the work when I left, I would think it does even more now so I'd pretty much be watching a computer screen. Don't miss the company BS.

I under stand fully. I worked for a shortline that likes orange and black and tried to run it likena class one. Switched over to a different one that is more laid back. I have at least 22 more years before I can think about retirement. Already pushing 19 in.

You must have got into railroading it as a youngster, I was 40 when I changed careers, no regrets at all. Stay safe out their.

Looks like the engine is sitting on a turntable to be turned to face a different direction. And it looks like construction of a new bridge.
Yep, end of the line. Probably a portable turntable that was moved as the rails went further toward their destination.
