    Nice crop of photos again.:cool:

    That gets me thinking about picking up a bunch of old Geep (and other loco) shells once the train shows start up again.

    Nothing relieves boredom like kitbashing some oddball piece of motive power...:)

    Love the steam, as you know. What is that device in Philiip K's photo? (For those of us who don't keep up with diesels).

    Looks like a sander tower.


    Most people get drunk, others want sex but as for me, I go Railfanning.

    Yeah, like Buddy said, sanding tower. Steam guys should be familiar with them as steam locomotives used a lot of sand too. :p
    Here next to a coaling tower in Argentine outside Kansas City is a row of sand towers to service multiple tracks.

    I guess this steam guy is getting dumb in his old age. Thanks. Never saw one like that. Great pic, Russell.
