Topics I've Started

Ordering more railroad DVDs

22 February 2021 - 10:32 PM

l'm about to order more. My favorite locmotives are diesels from the 1950s-80s. l've lived in Houston all my life and been wanting the Houston one for a few years.

The 2nd image is a crop so you can read the dates.


Upgrading my system.

13 February 2021 - 05:37 PM

l'm about to order a faster card reader and wireless mouse from B&H. When we get our tax refund, l'm going to put this desktop in the shop. Going to get Windows 8.1 replaced with Windows 10. And up the RAM from 4gb to 12 or maybe 16. The D7100 does not have a smaller pixel size RAW option like some of the Canons. And those huge files slow everything down. Hopefully the new card reader and more RAM will speed things up.


I saw this locomotive in a video

ln 2006 l got pics of these helper locos near Crawford Hill Nebraska. They connect to the rear of heavy coal trains and shove them up Crawford Hill. Then they go back down for their next assignment. ln a recently purchased train DVD, l saw the green loco #9283 in it. ln the video it was filmed in 1991 when it was new. According to the Burlington Northern Santa Fe roster, it's still on the roster and in use.


Down the pipeline

l went for a mini photo walk on the pipeline by our apartment complex. lt was nice of someone to put a chair there, but l wouldn't sit in it. Probably still wet from Sunday's rain.
