    When UP says "mechanical," I'm more inclined to think of a broken axle or wheel, maybe a broken rail, such as a chunk of the ball of the rail breaking away.

    Possible, but not probable. There are controlled signals at that crossover. Given a properly adjusted power-operated, remotely controlled switch per CFR 236, any gap greater than .249" between the...

    I think we can all agree that having one's thingy fall over is just about as bad as it gets. Perhaps a mild shock from a static grass applicator can offset this.:D

    Chill. It was a reasonable question Allen asked.

    Sound as if your applicator either isn't generating a sufficient charge or has a faulty ground connection. Check the battery, check the ground...

    Well, they'll look extremely awkward on curves that tight, like a kid wearing clothes two sizes too small.

    Better to go with broader curves.

    Here's the thing every new model railroader should...

    JETTracks, those grades on curves that tight results in an equivalent grade, due to friction, of 4 to 5% -- no bueno.

    How do you like those, Ed? I've been using FVMs, but too much out-of-stock issues, so I'm thinking IMs will be worth a try.

    And now to install it. But I could find only 1 nylon standoff. Hmmm, well, I think adhesive caulk will hold the four feet to hardboard just fine.

    So it was indeed a real, true-to-life, Tam Valley Frog Juicer which the postal service delivered yesterday!

    To make matters worse, the railroad that owns the bridge must send out inspectors to ensure the bridge is safe for rail traffic. Some major $$$ claims resulting from that, just due to train delays...

    This is apparently the direct result of UP's smart-routing dispatching system that's intended to eventually replace dispatchers. The story says "computer controlled." All Class 1's use computer...

    Anyone know if bitters goes well with frog juice?

    Hmm, I was just musing on how a photo could actually prove to Moose2013 that you were conducting a sound test. Now, HD video with 16-bit sound, yeah, that would work. ...:D
