Confusing, Do they complain every year? or just now? Is the new hump, louder than the old one?

Pipes, I'll bet it is a lot noisier, since they added the south side of the bowl and can run both sides of the hump at the same time. I always wondered at some of the people who lived along Ohio Route 613, within sight of the yard, there were some fairly nice homes scattered through there.

LAMCO needs tu revise the hearing protection rules to include the general public and force them tu use hearing protection.

After all, everybody should be subject tu The Book of Gray.

Did you open the window and listen?  Did you salute the site where the dorm once stood, as a sign of respect to the many, many rails that passed through that place?  Ah, and the little building at the southwest corner of Route 4 and 613, what was once The Corner, a bar of somewhat ill repute, you should salute that, tu, for those long ago days of fun and frivolity that went on within (and in the parking lot, tu).

I had my sound proof headphones on. I didn't hear shit. Today, you can't even tell where the dorm once stood. Just a couple of big oil/gas tanks now. I didn't know that building on route 4 used to be a watering hole. Before my time I suppose. Got a flat tire in a cab ride there once. You guys cursed it!

Oh, it was a watering hole, within walking distance of the dorm, too, in today's world, everyone would be fired but not then. One of our Lima guys got hit by a car along Route 4 between there and the dorm back in the mid-70's, he survived it and came back to work but it sure laid him up for awhile.

Way back in the early days of my railroading, there was a old guy who had it named Ray something, they had roast beef sandwiches in there that were the best, oh, they were good.

One of the senior conductors in the Bellevue-Peru pool when I hired out owned the building when he was a young man and had a little country store in it. One day, he found out the NKP was hiring again, circa 1938, he got hired braking, and sold the store when he made $39 the first half he worked. He said he never had so much money before.

 Those 12 hour hunger strikes when Snippy never had enough food made shit taste a lot better. 

Eastern North Carolina, at a time when poverty was incredibly horrendous, there were tons of small country groceries. A few near the tracks. One had a sandwich that was pretty much two thin slices of pot roast beef on white cheaper than Wonder bread (Sunshine) with gravy. 79˘ maybe 59˘. Wow, it was good. 

Those places were also good for the 25˘ egg sandwiches and Luzianne coffee in the morning, tu. 39˘ for country ham and egg.

 Jeez talk about being a walking hazard. The had to be a treacherous walk back to the dorm along a major state route with no walking space. Especially at night. For you AND the drivers.
