Hey Russ!

You sparked my curiosity so I googled your train.

Virginia and Truckee Railway Motor Car 22 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Very interesting! But only a 120 gallon gas tank? What sorta mpg does she get? And will she run on unleaded or do they have to get special additives for her?

Thanks for today's history lesson. I'll have to come check it out next fall when I head west again.

Dave,

I can see a rememblence to bacon in the second picture of Alice. Do you suppose that is what first attracted Rocky's attention?

The candy-striped look of Alice attracted me, but I did see bacon in her eyes!
After giving Rocky his vantage point in our RV back in 97, he has been king of the Realm of Rocky. He is pleased to have company, and also has a glow and a gleam in his "daddy eye" about him.
I think Alice might be a slut.

As it is my birFday, Nola found a GEM in the freezer, in the form of MN bluegill sunfish fillets! (Can y'all say "OM-NOM"?)
With that, there is a bunch of sweet potato fries. (A cuke/tomato salad as a prelude).

If memory serves (Hah! Since when?), you'll be better off sticking to wine. Something in beer (not the hops) ... Barley? Not sure about things like rum, though.

Sort of a corollary: Have you read Grain Brain?

She has a bright and shiny face. Hoping for propogation. 😳

What a lovely friend to have! I hope her disposition is as sweet as her face. Surely she won't be 2-faced!

Do I hear the pitter patter of little pebbles? Or is that little grains of sand?

BTW, oh Grand Poobah, happy birthday! Sorry I'm late to the party, but I see you've had a very good day. I wish you many more of same.

Cheers!

Spectacular! Just out of interest, what is her wheel configuration? I can't see all the wheels to count.

DH, btw, is retired from London Transport. Among other things, at one time he was buying trains for the Underground and once flew to Brazil to purchase wheels. See? Train folks here! C'mon in!

Cheers!
Sue

Now Jne, the only way to determine how old is older than our Poobah is to compare to Father Time aka. Wayne. Nobody is older than him.
Oh yes there is! Bob (Teffy) is older.

Thank you Sue! I had a grand BD.
We hope the genetics of Rocky and Alice will work in our favor. They both have a solid background and seem stable enough to provide a firm parental foundation. Keeping an eye on GCGW is on our minds, however!

Thanks again all. Still no word on Annies dad and he is still in ICU. Annie is not doing well as I have said - she is a big daddy's girl. He is on a ventilator.

Keep the Ommms flowing and thanks for all of your kindness. We greatly appreciate it.
Steve and Annie

If you look at the info on the right of the wiki page... it appears the train was converted to diesel in 2010.
