    I will never forget that miserable ripping demonstration when it happened. The owner of the saw was there. The nails he cut through were sometimes as big as drift pins, and perhaps they were. He shipped the ruined blades to a saw blade repair shop in South Dakota. I imagine that he dropped over a grand to repair them with new cutters or he just bought new blades.

    I am really glad that you did not have anything like that occur at your thrashing show. Two thumps up!:)

    The owner here sent the blade to Rice, MN to someone there who can work on circular mill blades. Will have to say hammering/repairing saw blades is probably a dying art nowadays.

    We went thru Alma in May while doing the "100 mile garage sale". I did not find any chainsaws to bring home with me.

    You should see the Cat D9 when it is on top of the coal pile behind the 2 locomotives (this is only about 1/2-2/3 of the height of the pile). Looks like a toy up there.

    This one was on an industrial spur along the river off Warner/Childs Rd in St. Paul near Dayton's Bluff.

    The lube oil doesent get changed too often, unless major contamination happens (from fuel or cooling water). On the older EMDs, there is usually some getting past the rings in the cylinder, and it usually goes out the stack (and coatsEVERYTHING in oil). Just keeping the oil topped off and doing an oil analysis every so often is usually enough to keep them going, a package of oil additives may need to be added if analysis shows it's needed.

    Keep in mind, the average locomotive engine crankcase holds between 200-300 gallons of lube oil, changing oil in just a few locomotives gets expensive very quickly.

    Hello from Winter WI, a great place to scrounge for wood in the north woods of Wisconsin.

    Here's some more of 4014. Weighs 1.25 million pounds and is 132 feet long. It's an impressive machine even when not moving.

    It is amazing the cult type following that the UP steam trains have when they are on the rails!
