Five Hours Of Errands, And Then Enlightenment.

Up at ten:

  • Breakfast
  • Mail drop
  • Drop off old Asus for brain transplant
  • Home Depot for bug spray
  • CampingWorld in Fife for curtain rods for the Focus
  • Bank deposit
  • Pecos Pit for BBQ
  • Home Depot for forgotten items
  • Les Schwab to get leaker fixed (must return)
  • Safeway for groceries and gas
  • Les Schwab to get the damn thing done
  • Home

That would be FIVE hours of stuff.

But there is a mystery solved. The train from the other day or so in these pictures:

So, here are the much better shots from train spotters:

This is the “power” car…look at the exhaust pipes on the front, and the aero-dome for the satellite downlink stuff.

Thanks to NormanDcat who looked at the photos and actually figured out my “I thought it was labeled MRL on the cars”.

More is the info he found:

Had the train cars barged in so that the yacht folks could rehab them:

I’d give my left testicle to ride on that train – oh the joys of coal in the US:

Makes me think of Warren Buffet and his “train set” which I’ve seen parts of. Apparently I run in the wrong crowd.

Same dinner as last night.

No worries.
