Hey Ed,

Whoever said that "silly" was a bad thing?!? I like silly ... I'm silly all the time, I hope. Silly, silly, silly ... that's me! ;)

As for "food grade" ... that explains it ... I've been wondering where our local greasy-spoon diner has been getting its chili !

It's funny that you would start this thread. Just the other day I saw some covered hoppers in a little town near my house that were in as bad of condition as anything I've done. I was going to take some pics this weekend.

I used to post it in my Where have I been thread. But no one is interested in that so....I retired the thread.:rolleyes:

Upstate NY today.

Who says they don't use cabooses? This is the second one I found.
They backed her in and switched around a bunch of tank cars then left.

For you CP fans.:D:thumbsup:

Kind of sad, that sidelined parked caboose.

It's just a snippet view, but I like that brick trainhouse (?) building in the background, too.

That is the train waiting for the gate to open. I don't know what the building is.
It's not sidelined, they backed it in and went about switching with it. Then they took a few empty cars away.
First time I ever saw a train switching around cars with a caboose.:confused:

I think it's great! I think I will use that as a scene for my rusty caboose:thumbsup:

I love those brick trainhouse buildings. Classic and yet functional architecture. Smart brick construction ... quasi-pillars between window bays, less brick wall thickness around window bays. Clever.

OK I had to take this picture at 55 mph as I was on the NJ pike and would have got run over any slower.:D
I saw this on the way home after picking up some food grade glycerine 99% in Port Newark NJ, so when I went back to the Elizabeth with a box to pickup some totes, I had the camera ready.

I never heard of this RR before. Odd to see it in NJ.:rolleyes:
There was three of them hooked together.

As always great shots Ed. Best of the season to you and the family.

Why thank you sir...............:worshippy:

Most of my pictures are taking at the last moment.
On the roll, pedal to the metal, playing some tunes rolling down the highways.:D

Best to you too.
