Re: BNSF , Kingman Az.

This place is a mile from downtown, my wife and I often relax there and see multiple trains on both tracks. Recently we saw a unit grain train that was odd in that it had 4 units on the front, 3 in the middle and 2 in the rear. All intermodal have at least 3 units in front with 4 or 5 common and occ...

BNSF , Kingman Az.

I moved this past spring and settled in SW corner of Golden Valley AZ. My house sits high up next to base of the mounains and looking SE I can see The Mainline over 12 miles away. A train looks like a line of army ants from that distance. Now I need to get a 100x spotting scope.

Re: Conduct issues

Having been on numerous boards since the inception of the net, this issue has always been a problem. Some think that sitting behind a keyboard in their home makes them safe and secure from all negative responses to what they say. What many do not realize is that while they may have the feeling of be...

Re: Air Force 1 in Detroit

Denise Ilitch was on Paul W Smith radio show this morning (760 am Detroit). She set it up before the interview that the $40,000 per person fund raiser for President Obama was off limits. The king has no clothes and we are the peasants who say nothing. Read Animal Farm my friends and you will unders...

Re: Air Force 1 in Detroit

Shouldn't this be titled " Air FARCE One ". Some friends of ours had tickets to the Titanic exhibit at the Henry Ford. And because some idiot that was on that plant was in town , they were told to leave without seeing the entire exhibit and without a refund or apology ! Yep, the secret service in a...

Re: Air Force 1 in Detroit

Air Force one is the call sign for any aircraft that is currently carrying the president. Whether it be a fighter jet or one of two 747's, it will be called "Air Force One" as long as the president is in it. Both of the 747's are 747-200B's. As Typhoon said, they were delivered in 1990 while George...

Shes big in the democratic party in Michigan, and is on the board of regents at UofM. I was at Greenfield Village (next to He...

Re: Air Force 1 in Detroit

Never more will I buy any Little Caesar's pizza (or anything else from the Ilitches). Obviously, they have so much of their own money, that they don't need any of my money. I also don't support folks who don't support my values, a la the Ilitches supporting the Socialist-in-Chief! PS I also haven't...

Re: MC Station Trespasser Hurt

Do not worry about this guy. He just won the Lottery. He is probably going to sue the building owner, Manny Maroun, because the surrounding fence was only 10 feet tall and did not have enough razor wire on it and the "NO TRESPASSING" signs were spaced greater than the required 50 feet apart to "pro...

Re: Earl Scruggs dead at 88

I true icon of banjo players. Some people say he single handedly stopped the banjo from extinction with his 3 finger style that he invented. I listened to him back 50 years ago when i was a teen.
Nice to see someone live to a ripe old age and die without being linked to alcohol and drug abuse. :)

Re: Chevy Volt Production Shutdown

Everyone has different driving needs , that is why all the different vehicles out there, not because of a govt. mandate. People will drive whatever suits their needs. I am probably a good candidate for the Volt. 80% of my travel is either an 18 mile round trip into Beaverton or a 35 mile round trip ...
