It happened with MIR and VIR and Sun conjunct Uranus celestial influences.
So this is what could happen and did. The collection of the above celestial aspects
is rarified and so are train derailments.

Snippy is getting old. Which one is that rolled over?

At least there's not a second train derailed.

Looks like it's in the middle of a CP.

I guess it's Conrail blue? Looked a lot baby-bluer than Conrail when I first saw it.

Not CR blue, Snippy, but one of the many distinctive LAMCO paint schemes, Cy can't claim any great familiarity with today's LAMCO schemes.

The trash 9s are the best engines we have, except for the low ass back seats "anti sleep seats".

I had a 4000 in trail, thought it was an impressive rebuild, way better than the 6900 junk. It's like you could immediately tell that a 3rd party contractor did it, and not LAMCO.


It is a 3rd party right?

Pipes even IF you could pick and choose your own power, you'd find something to bitch about. If it ain't the seats, it would be the heaters, or the A/C, or the lousy wipers, or the glare off the windows... Like they say... It's always something. GEvo locos are very cheap ta build (Most in Mexico) from kits shipped south. And the big outfits eat 'em up as quickly as they cross the border!

The outfits buy 'em sight unseen because they want the latest. Truth be told after a mere two years they gotta go back ta Erie for upgrades to software, and AC traction motors under 'em. GE eats most of the cost because they have a time-limit on every one sold. Plus the agreements cover damn near everything except 'consumables' like oil, and filters, hoses, and lights. And fuel of course!

But the damn things pull! They're rated at 4000+ HP for traction, so they better do it, or lose to the competition.

 Hate like hell ta piss in yer Cheerios.

Caterpillar builds thier Ex-EMD sd70ac shit from kits shipped to Mexico.

Yeah, what Cal said. I thought that was common knowledge.

And there's really nothing to complain about with our Dash 9s. I think the low back seat I had was specific to that engine, and if we hadn't waited 3 hours for our outbound I would have never noticed.  Now I could write an essay worth of complaints on the rolling pile of shit EMDs
