   Ole buzzard posted on Photography  This is a builder's photo of Norfolk & Western Class J1 #606. This locomotive was built to the same mechanical specifications as Class J #611, but didn't receive the beautiful streamlining.

   Ole buzzard posted on Photography  The big day is drawing nearer. Norfolk and Western class J #611 leads train 957 uphill at Jamestown, North Carolina, during its mainline test run on May 21, 2015. After a year-long restoration to operating condition, this is the first time 611 has operated under steam on a mainline since December of 1994.

   Ole buzzard posted on Photography  Norfolk & Western Class J #611 is nearing the end of its almost year long restoration. It was fired up again last week, and took an unplanned trek down the tracks at the North Carolina Transportation Museum. The original plan of work for that day was just to get it up to operating pressure and to hold it. The restoration team decided at the last minute to go ahead and travel at walking speed so they could listen to the running gear and make sure there are no mechanical issues hiding. The cosmetic restoration is not yet complete, as can be seen by the unpainted cylinder covers and the missing air pump shield at the front of the locomotive beneath the boiler.

   Ole buzzard posted on Jokes  A woman recently walked into Harrods, which is often described as the fanciest store in Britain. She immediately spotted a beautiful diamond necklace, and quickly approached it.

While bending over to take a closer look at the jewelry, she unexpectedly farted. Humiliated, she looked around to see if anyone noticed, even saying a little prayer that no sales clerks were near her.

Unfortunately for her, she turned around to find a good lucking sales associate standing right behind her.

“Good day, Madam,” he greeted her. “How may we help you today?”

Blushing and hoping that he didn’t hear her fart, the woman asked him how much the bracelet cost. His reply took her by surprise.

“Madam – if you farted just looking at it – you’re going to sh*t yourself when I tell you the price!”
