Yeah, right ... who WOULD want to live anywhere else?
I grew up in the 40's at Laramie, Wyo, my folks were deep into the U.P., and I was on a "4000" (what they now call the U.P. Bog Boy) before I was six ..
Long time past, whole way of life changed and gone ..
But you are right .. I grew up across the street from the yards in Laramie and now, at the end of my life I still live right across the street from the yard ... at Eugene ..
I didn't plan it, it just worked out that way ...
Heh, heh ... of course, now it is almost at the point where we are afraid to take pics for fear of being thought terrorists or something ... but I really have interest in Oregon's small utility lines like Williamette and Pacific that serve the lovcal mils ..
They have a lot of colorful modern engines that would be great for modeling ... and of course the goods old U.P. jas her wings over all ...
Oh, BTW: my e-mail is: firstname.lastname@example.org in case anyone wants to write ... I like to hear from folks ... sort of housebound these days ..
Best to all of y'all ...
