Just the thought of being outside makes me want to set the thermostat up to some tropical like temperature.
@ ~Z~ « Sat 7:47:17 am »
that doesn’t sound remotely enjoyable. I was sleeping while you jogged. much better :)
@ AARR « Sat 7:08:25 am »
When it is this cold my fingers get cold about 20-30 minutes into my jog and never really warm up

"Wind whipping down the neck of my shirt
Like I ain't got nothing on
But I'd rather fight the wind and rain
Than what I've been fighting at home

Yonder comes a truck with the US mail
People writing letters back home
Tomorrow she'll probably want me back
But I'll still be just as gone"

So when you add rail, how does that work? I would guess you don’t just add a few inches. Probably cut a chunk and put a slightly larger chunk back in so you don’t have a bunch of joints or welds in a short span on the rail.
@ Saturnalia « Fri 10:22:52 pm »
Tis a problem child joint though, we probably will have to add rail next week.

Four new bolts and 6 buckets of heat tape later, and she’s back together

Train reported a pull-apart in Hammond. Couldn’t get any foremen in so I got to play Foreman. Scary thought I know

it was a serious proposal. The DOT ultimately chose to build the suspension bridge over the causeway. It was nearly a 50/50 split in cost and complexity according to a couple of different articles. Several proposals also considered a second deck on the suspension bridge for rail.
@ ~Z~ « Fri 3:32:04 pm »
only thought is maybe the depth of the lake is less going through the islands than the straights of mackinac.

Wow, watching this crazy nor’easter about whack New England
@ SD80MAC « Fri 2:00:32 pm »
pretty cool, it was to have been rail and highway, with a swing bridge between Mackinac and Bois Blanc islands

I actually have a blueprint of a proposed causeway linking St Ignace and Cheboygan
@ DaveO « Fri 1:38:28 pm »
Cheboygan-Bois Blanc Island-Round Island-Mackinac Island-St. Ignace. The Bridge Route. Get rid of all those darn ferries :lol:
@ Chip « Fri 1:35:23 pm »
I will never understand why some people have a boner for passenger service to TC and beyond. I’m a railfan as much as anyone here but there’s no way. It’s been studied over and over, anyone who tries it will be bankrupt in a year or less.
@ AARR « Fri 1:02:09 pm »
~Z~, if dalek ling keeps posting about resurrecting passenger service on the line from Ste. St. Marie to anywhere, we might have to put him on the NOOB list LOL
