   Ole buzzard  On 1/10/2010, the Union Pacific ran a three mile long test train comprised entirely of container cars originating from the port of Los Angeles. The train utilized a total of nine locomotives: three at the head of the train, and three additional sets of two cut in at one mile intervals in the train. Those cut in are what are called Distributed Power Units (DPU ). They are controlled by a single engineer from the cab of the lead unit, and they can be controlled independently. If the train was cresting a hill, those locomotives on the downhill side could be in braking mode, while those still on the uphill side could still be pushing and pulling. (The video is nine minutes long, and you'll see the DPUs at approximately 3:00, 6:00 and 8:50. )

   Zzzghy  Thank you for posting this, O.B. I've been driving up and down the I-10 from LA to Palm Springs since the mid-70's, and I love the trains. I wouldn't much care to be stuck at a crossing while this monster is passing by, but it's still beautiful. Again, thanks for posting. I'll be sharing this with some of my gearhead homies...

it only bears out what I said 20 years ago. People who rob should be required to obtain a license after taking a test...a close second is voting.

   Balogreene  I write technical manuals for the Army. There are many Warnings we have to include we giggle as we write. This is only intended to lift that, 150 lbs, do not ride it, do not put anything but that on it. Don't look directly at a laser. Don't plug it in while wet. Don't stand in radioactive field. Some of it is common-sense, some of it is to protect the Army and the contractors, cause we all know these young guys are going to try it.

   Bettijo  How Mrs. S. Got a Lot of Money

This story was told by a Dr. Isaac Krazen, who is a family doctor in New York. This is a story that happened quite some time ago, in Manhattan, to a very rich old lady we shall call - Mrs. S. and how she accidently got $40,000 dollars.

Many know Mrs. S from Manhattan, New York, mostly because she's rich and lives on the luxurious and well lit Fifth Avenue. From the window of her home once can see central park, and the beautiful lake at its center.

Mrs. S wasn't interested in buying things. She already had it all. She didn't want to give anything either, because she already gave more than expected of her. She wasn't interested in travel because she has done so already and now it tired her. Movies, concerts and the theatre bored her. Relatives and children vexed her and her doctor did not allow her to eat sweets.

Her doctor also ordered her to do a lot of walking, and Mrs. S did as he asked. Each morning she walked for a kilometer and a half. Most people could walk that in 15-20 minutes, but Mrs. S carried the weight of 96 years, and so the walk took about 2 hours, while she was accompanied at all times by her personal chauffeur, in his ironed suit, driving slowly along the track and keeping an eye on her.

People passing by are impressed by her. Many know her. Few are jealous. They'd like to be rich, but also young and healthy. The combination of riches and old age is more thought provoking that envy provoking.

But there's a problem, Mrs S. needs to pee frequently, and along the route there were no bathrooms. This was just the kind of problem rich people can solve. At the opening of each of the houses in this luxurious street, stands a doorman meticulously dressed and charged with guaranteeing no-one comes in but the tenants. The lobby also has a nice and clean bathroom. Messengers, on behalf of Mrs. S, visited 5 of these buildings, talked to the doormen, and gave them large sums of money to make sure they will always allow the old lady to use the bathrooms.

One spring morning Mrs. S went on her walk. She was up to 79th street when she needed to get to a bathroom. The usual doorman was ill and his replacement did not allow her to enter. Frustrated, she went into a nearby funeral home. As she came in, she was asked if she came to Jeffery Green's funeral. She did not like to lie but felt she had to to get to that bathroom. She was then handed a guest book to sign her name and address so that the family can sent her a card for coming to pay her respects.

She then proceeded to the bathroom to finally relieve herself.

Two weeks later she got a letter from the law office of Becker &

   Bettijo  Epstein:

"Dear Mrs. S, we are executing the will of the late Jeffery Green, deceased these two weeks. Mr. Green had no relatives and so he has bequeathed his fortune to those who came to his funeral. Since you were there, you are entitled to a 7th of his fortune, here is a check for $40,000."

It was a large sum then, but Mrs. S had more, and so she donated it to the hospital where her doctor was working, where it helped to save no few lives.

And that doctor is me.

I guess you have to know where to pee.

   Rake King  There seems to be turmoil everywhere in the school systems....here as well. I was just chiding you, but as you point out our duties to others often cause some disruptions in our routines. I have a 95 year old aunt who keeps my Mrs and I on the run doing medical appointments.

You have a wonderful sense of humor...don't let "THEM" take it away.
