    I was too busy with my camera to notice what happened to this guy, but I do know that people were screaming at him to get away from the tracks. Isn't that steam discharge pretty hot?

    Thanks! I actually wanted 4014 to be a little closer (less sign, more 4014), but it was moving awfully fast and I didn't time it right. By the time I could take a second picture it had already roared...

    You and me both! It's quite the tangled up mess of metal, and having nothing but ground level photos isn't making things any easier. It looks like there are four distinct elevator legs inside there...

    I added a few more pieces to the Cargill puzzle this week (bulk scale shed and railcar shed). Still a looooong way to go.

    Based on the freight trains that I've watched roll through town, I'd say somewhere around 40 MPH. It's not a slow crawl, that's for sure.

    Good question - it seems like a pretty unique opportunity, but I couldn't hazard a guess as far as how many people know or care. Any idea how fast it moves? It'd be bummer if it roars though town at...

    It's not due in until next week (Wednesday), no? Sounds like about 10:30 AM or so (based on the schedule published on up.com), which is going to be tough for me unless I take the day off from work....
  13. It never ceases to amaze me what's available out there in N scale

    In need of a commercial trash compactor (of all things) for my Cargill facility, I'm thinking "oh swell, now I gotta figure out a way to scratchbuild one of these things?"

    I've never understood the rant about "my preorder didn't get made, so I'll never preorder again". If things get produced based on preorders, how does that help?

    Yeah, you have to get that decoder board out of the way. Too hard to finagle the driveshaft otherwise.

    Thanks, NTB. Details can cover up a multitude of sins as the eye does tend to be drawn to them (and away from stuff that perhaps didn't work out as well as you had hoped, lol).

    Yes, printed my own. I got the graphic by doing a screen capture on cargill.com.

    I printed a bunch of extras and you're welcome to them if you think the size would work out for you.
