Thanks for the photo Skyline. In your shot as well as the one taken by Shibbergish, there appear to be two extra tender cars (yellow) behind the black one attached to the engine. I assume these cars make up for the scarcity of functional water tanks along the route?

It also looks like there might be a conventional engine (#2551) between the tenders and passenger cars???

The diesel helper is to reduce the pulling load on 4014, as well as to give it some braking power. It is also there to protect the schedule if 4014 should break down. In the photo above, the yellow sign to the left of 4014 is the "speed limit"; top one "P" is for Passenger trains, and the bottom one "F" is for Freight.

Yes, they are additional water tenders.

We’ve had plenty of birds down in Crestline. Now that a lot of the migratory birds have moved on, it’s all but hatches, stellar jays, and a bunch of flickers hitting the suet. Our squirrel population hasn’t rebounded after that die off from years ago. We did get to watch a mom and her babies grow up this year. Now chipmunks, that’s another issue. We have dozens on our back hill. I wish they’d eat the acorns that are raining down on the house.

My wife has noticed a lack of birds at her feeders the past month. It all started when she spotted a hawk sitting on the neighbors fence, a few feet from the feeders. Except for that day, I don't think it is connected.

to you two guys having fun teasing each other about driving, I'll join you for a spicy drive on arctic circle in one of my SFA Squarebody Suburbans....... our friends with newer subs cant keep up. Solid axles and stiff springing make it feel literally like you are on railroad tracks. Of course straightaways are another matter with only 190 hp and 6k pounds

HIB, I have two Black Oaks and my yard is covered with acorns. In addition to my resident gray squirrel and chipmunks, the acorns have attracted a family of raccoons, but I don't think it connects to the birds. I could be wrong though...

Some friends hiked glory ridge last week and were commenting on how many acorns there are down lower, could that be where theyve gone?

Benny, I just ckd and my feeder is empty again. I think they like my new feeder. Will take a picture and send it to you. Also had to get a water moat to keep the ants off.
