Little boy with a bicycle sitting on a pile of ties watches train pass by closely. After the last car passes by he feels if the rail was hot or had a penny on the track.

WOW! Those things are popping up all over the place aren't they! There was a slug set in Manistee around this same time period last July too! The horn on that unit sounds nice too. A Nathan P5 Maybe??

And another nice report, BB!
