I'll take the plunge and show my face as well. I'm at the controls of Twin City Rapid Transit Company No. 1239, built by TCRT in 1907 at the company's 31st Street shops. The car was sold in the early 1950s for use as a cabin; we rescued it in the 1980s. Restoration to the car's as built "gate car" configuration was begun in 1999 and completed in 2004.
Thanks!

1997, an ex-LS&MS 2-8-0, a lot of mud and a lot of bugs.

I had my wife do a quick, comical doodle of me years ago; it still works well enough that folks can use it to pick me out of a beer festival crowd.

That's one heck of a long trolley ride. :-)



Here's me thinking about some Yuengling, pepper cabbage and brown gravy to end the day at the Kempton Hotel.

Sandy: so if perchance we are ever in the same place at the same time, I should look for someone resembling Harpo Marx--with a beer mug in hand? ;)

Thanks!

Finding Sandy is easy. Just say real loud "I hear Riffin is buying GG1 4859 and moving it to Stewartstown." There'll be a blue streak, a flash of light, and there he'll be in front of you.
