Re: Guy tries to hit a navy ship. With a train.

The nutcase conspiracy theorists are having a field day. Good thing there is no shortage of tinfoil.

The one thing they all seem to have in common is they can never coherently explain their theories, itís always some grand unnamed plot. Hopefully heíll have many years as a guest of the state to figure it out.

Just 'cause you're PARANOID doesn't mean they're not after you!

Re: Guy tries to hit a navy ship. With a train.

the CHP officer that witnessed the event detained him and heard martyr-like ramblings
Of course he did, geez. Let me guess, they will now release him so he doesn't get CoVid-19 in jail.

Nutjob! But then it is the land of Fruits and Nuts!

Sadly, that locomotive is now scrap as it'll have suffered too much damage to be economical to repair.

Having worked on locomotives for ten years and in the rail transportation business for forty, I've seen some weird and unusual places where locomotives end up at. Rolling on asphalt is not a problem as long as its cold outside. Making that first left hand turn? ehh...

Itís difficult to comment on this because it is difficult to understand how a idiot like this got to be a Locomotive Engineer.

Probably became an engineer before the whole world went nuts would be my guess.

I'm currently working on an HO scale railroad diorama, but no plans for a hospital ship in the near future.

'66 El Camino, 327, 5 speed, 3.31 posi.

Custom painters don't screw up! They just add more graphics.
