   Ole buzzard  Gram, you were asking about coffee table books on one of my posts. I just came across this one, and just based on the description of the book, it is one that I would add to my library. The Norfolk and Western was the very last railroad to dieselize in 1959. It was primarily a coal hauling railroad, and management did not want to "poke a thumb in the eye" of their biggest customers by dieselizing.

   BirdsNest  We are planning to visit once they re open for next year. We go to the local feed store just outside of the town but never go into town. I don't know why. There is a great store there, an old fashioned hardware store that has EVERYTHING. I can see a trip to the store in my immediate future. It is a place where you can lose a couple of hours just looking.

   Ole buzzard  Gram, BNSF operates their unit grain trains as 100 car units. Their unit coal trains operate as 130 car units. Each car, either grain or coal, has a 100 ton capacity.
