I headed over to Iowa Junction after dinner to see what was shaking down in Peoria today. I see the newly acquired ICG unit have already received quite a coat of grime and dirt working hard. I like it! A guy I know (Mike in New Mexico) weathered the locomotives for me. Now, the ICG units look "normal" to me.
Bureau Operator Article
I came across this article by a Bureau Operator today. Good reading. You can download the PDF here. No need to create a DropBox account, just click on No and it will continue to the file.
Rock in the News
In other news, I was interviewed by a reporter from the Charlotte Observer this morning regarding my hobby of model trains. It is due to an article they are working on for the upcoming Lionel 115th Anniversary. Lionel's office is nearby in Harrisburg, North Carolina (next to the Charlotte Motor Speedway). I'll post links once the article comes out.
No other progress lately. This weekend, I plan on working on cleaning locomotives, test run and ensure properly speed matched.
