SOMETHING MORE TO WRITE…?

Time is fleeting away

I’ll save “Stevie” for another day…

After last night

He’s earlier in sight,

I’d better clean up and sign off!!!!

HE LOVES ODDBALL TRAINS!

When buying trains for his collection,

He aimed in certain directions…

He took great pains

Finding oddball trains,

Delighting him in their inspection!

A little like him they are,

Interesting shapes and parts…

Characters like him

Respond to whim,

An oddball becomes his star!

The ALCO RSD-four or five,

Worked good for heavy-hauling drive…

Six wheels each truck

Earned more than good luck,

They kept tonnage going, climb or dive!

This particular unit he doesn’t have,

There ARE LIMITS to what one can grab…

But pictures show

Why that railroad would go,

With an oddball–extra traction, rails to grab!

That high-looking “stick” so grand,

Is an extra-high fill for traction sand…

Blown on the rails,

Better traction it avails,

One of the reasons they survived in Iron Ore land!

<3 JOANNE <3

❤    JOANNE    ❤

Putting it very succinctly,

Joanne in our eyes is distinctly…

A treasure to see

While we happily,

Visit her office meekly.

In fashion that’s the best,

In professional confidence rests…

Her cheery manner

With not a complainer,

Or any of which we’ll attest!

Blessed by her children dear,

We’re blessed by her presence here…

Those of us taken,

Loyalties unshaken

Would make our affection of her clear!

We hope this Valentine will do,

We sure do appreciate you…!

LOCOMOTIVE ROSTERING

LOCOMOTIVE ROSTERING

My N scale spree nearly through,

Just waiting on an ALCO RS-2…

Two RS-3s

Need payment please,

I promise these are the last two!

Need a display for runs

Of two or three trains at once…

By Christmas’d be fine

Double-track main line

Is a “GO” with appropriation of funds.

–Jonathan Caswell
