“You know an EMD is broken if it is smoking”. Unknown

On Friday, November 21, 2003, I had a chance to get a quick glimpse of a pair of NS SD80MAC from my office window at work. What a site even though I was maybe half a mile away. From a distance, you could see a trail of evidence being omitted from the lead SD80MAC. At first, I thought that it was a GE leading since I could not hear the engines very clearly. But once it was able to clear all the building obstructing my view, I was very surprised to see a pair of NS SD80MAC’s tugging a long ore train on the Cleveland line. I wonder where the pair is heading to. It is not that often that you see a pair of NS SD80MAC’s in Cleveland. If you have the answer to this question, email me.

I am going to work really hard to update my weblog with at least 2 new post this week. So stayed tuned.

It has been awhile since I have made an entry here. So much is going on and like always, there is not enough time in the day to cram everything in it. I have a couple of things in mind that I would like to do with this website. There first one is to perform a complete overhaul. The new site would be transformed into a very interactive one. I am still thinking about how I am going to go about this. Should I use PHP or go with Microsoft's .Net programming suite? I am going to have to look at both very well and make a decision.

Other than that, I have a few "editorials" that I am going to post if anybody would like to hear my two cents. One is about the colorful constist that railroad's run and I can not remember right now what the other one was. When it comes back to me, I will update my weblog.
