    Default Abducted !!!

    I had an uneasy feeling as I climbed up into the cab of #3002 for the '275 late mail. Nothing felt right, the controles felt stiff and the fire gave off no heat. I felt a cold chill run down my spine
    A.jpg
    All week the omens hadn't been good. Three Magpies flying backwards, an old man with a double bend in his walking stick and four consecutive ABBA songs on the radio !
    B.jpg
    My fears were born out as a green light settled on the tracks ahead Joe gotted the breaks on pretty sharp and pulled us up short of the silver/green saucer that now straddled the rails fifty yards in front.
    C.jpg
    I climbed down to investigate and had just drawn even with the nose of old '3002' when I found myself surrounded by little green aliens.
    D.jpg
    As they grabbed hold of me, all I could think of was 'what have I done to upset Allen H. so much?' What had I posted that was so bad ?

    It was as I was carried up the ladder that I saw the markings on the ship which suggested that this was not of Allen's doing. !!

    As I was dragged through the ship I was able to understand snippets of 'Alien'. I picked out; 'Diesels' 'bad' 'twenty' 'years' 'punish' 'Mars' They bundled me into a cell but as I past through the door I caught sight of something that made my blood freeze, there on the wall, in badly applied decals, were the initials; MT&P RR
    F.JPG
    In a shock of horror, one name appeared before my eyes; Moose2013 The life drained out of me as I knew I was being punished for this post Canadian Pacific No.1000 Demonstater



    Moose Moose, I'm so sorry, please let me go back to Earth. I promise I'll NEVER stray to the darkside again.

    Thanks, Tom

    They do. But tell me, are you not just a little frightened ? You know, with having a Diesel next to your name ? Halloween is not over by far

    Ten out of ten to you. I wondered if I should have made it more obvious ?

    You win the 'get out of UFO free' card for a year

    In my happy ignorance of diesels, I thought A-B-B-A applied to a combination of any model. Not just F's

    A-B-B-A does apply to any, but seems ubiquitous to the EMD bunch that nailed the coffin closed on them beautiful steamers! Hence, EVIL DISEASELS!!

    Moose has ... He ran afoul of Moose and is now in hospital, recovering from hoof marks. Other than that, he's fine...
