JOCHS WAS SIGHTED AT THE AMERICAN LEGION IN NEW BUFFALO DRINKING A CAPN MORGAN AND COKE WITH CAPN CAPS. :D :D
HE WAS THEN SEEN CHASING AMTRAK 364 INTO NEW BUFFALO.
AFTER THE AMTRAK DEPARTURE, HE DISAPPEARED INTO THE BLACKNESS.

AND THE STORY CONTINUES. :shock: :shock: :shock:

You people are slipping.

It's been over 50 hours and nobody has reported that I was in Grand Rapids on Monday. :lol: :wink:

Possibly, if the weather isn't too ugly and I don't have to work.

I was able to escape the lake effect snow but turned into a Jochscicle when taking this photo in Ashley :lol:

When the sun went down it went from chilly to downright cold! Even Santa had to go inside at Ashley because of the cold.. :lol:

Just saw him today several times: Half Moon Lake, Grant and Newaygo.

He needs to learn where to park :wink: :twisted:

Photo to prove it in due time.

It is an inside joke. He was told to park in a different spot at Half Moon Lake by the police. Nothing more, just a teaser.

The man himself posing for the other guys. I'm sure they'll chime in with 5 of the same picture, but photos or you were not there!

I had originally parked up at the stop sign on the side street right there, and a state police officer stopped and asked if I was broke down, I said I was waiting on the Santa train, then he told me I should park back farther, so I moved to the stop sign on the road going off the road that intersected M-37. I was moving just as MQT3001 showed up.

Here are my photos.

A lot of trees in the foreground appear to be ash trees, which will probably be dead within the next few years thanks to the Emerald Ash Borer. Not sure how long it takes for them to fall over after they die.
And my apparent fans. :lol:

I can confirm that I was in Manistee. :P

If you do video, you can have obstructions and still have a good shot, because the train is alive, not frozen. Those trees are not that bad, IMHO.

I brought up the idea of a volunteer caboose hop to cut trees for those of us that wanted firewood. RA didn't like the idea though.

What they don't know can't hurt em! Maybe those trees can just "disappear" and we didn't know what happened! BTW, jw, are those trees on RR property?
