Questions for Mark (was: My Three Cents)
Was this part of the "storage on wheels" program that I read about in one of the DO annual reports?
Also, since you're back with us on the list, I'm wondering if you would mind sharing a few FJ&G anecdotes with us. What was it like pulling loads up the hill? Which engine did you prefer and which ones gave the most trouble? You're an experienced engineer and conductor and every railroad has its tricks when viewed from the cab. Where did you have to exercise the most caution on the FJ&G and where was it smooth sailing? Where were the most fun places to operate? Did the light rail give you any trouble in any spots along the line?
I think most of us here would relish any details you might afford the group.
