    </font>[/QUOTE]Best thing I know to put on okra is a biohazard sign- I have tried to eat the stuff in gumbo, fried and (yargh) boiled, and I STILL can't stand the stuff! And I'm married to a Southern gal, and can eat most anything Southern or Texican.

    Oh well, that aside, welcome back, Jerry! Can't wait to see what's next.

    Saw that website- the logo for the railroad looks very similar to this:
    [​IMG]

    That's the logo for the Alabama, Tennessee & Northern, which also shares the same initials as your new line. The first AT&N, however, ran south off the Frisco to Mobile, AL. It was taken over by Frisco in 1947.

    In a way, it's good to see a fallen flag represented. And even better to see another rail line being used, instead of scrapped.

    High greens to OmniTrax! :D

    Wow, this is turning out to be a very good day. First my ISP started to work again after being on the fritz for several days. And now I log in and find that you're back.

    Congrats on the new position.

    Welcome back.

    Covered hoppers, tank cars or box cars? (Please, don't say flatcars!)

    Welcome back Jerry! Looks like a great 1:1 model railroad you have there!

    Jerry:

    I am really interested in your opinion of the tunnel motors. Surely they are not as reliable as the modern engines, wide cabs, etc. I guess I mean do the TMs operate well and do the job you expect?

    William Cowie...I got it on the grits... [​IMG]

    The Tunnel Motors are very reliable.....basically an SD40-2/SD45-2 on a longer frame. I am going to be doing a class on Tunnel Motors as soon as I get more moved in, unpacked, and have a day off!

    Yes, this has been a real high point for me. The OC is more of a MA & PA operation, and I have always prefered Mainline operations, so this has been great!
