Small but Functional
Title:  Small but Functional
Description:  Not much more than an Amshack, but it looks better and is climate controlled. We can't decorate too much, it would probably get stolen if we put more out (some of the green ribbons were ALREADY stolen).

Southbound Intermodal in the Snow
Title:  Southbound Intermodal in the Snow
Description:  This was the first train of the day after it started snowing, it is pushing 2 inches of snow off the rail head with the first axle. This was really powdery snow and the trains really blew it around today. This one passed at 50 mph. School was canceled today at Malden and dad and I ventured out into the winter wonderland. We ended up getting 4 inches, a good sized snow for this area, especially when it was right at freezing when the precipitation occured.
