Correct me if I'm wrong, but could it be that this thread got its start when Clark Propst was looking for his RMC article on -- gasp -- a diesel switcher?

Another thought...


Clark, look at it this way. Suppose you found out the quiet, dull and uninteresting guy in the next office was dating Scarlett Johansson. (If you don't know who she is, insert the name of your favorite glamorous movie star here.) You'd certainly view him in a new light, and have a lot more respect for him. Mike's interest in passenger trains makes him a much more interesting and (dare I say it?) respectable person.


Whether Mike views the parade of yellow and gray (or gray and gray, or green) passenger and mail trains over Sherman Hill as a hindrance to the real purpose of the railroad or vice versa is beside the point - his interest in both freight and passenger equipment and operations elevates him. He might even impress Scarlett Johansson with his Big Boy.
