Re: AC&F covered hoppers


Speaking of helium cars, somewhere or other around the house
I've got several shots of the real helium cars on SP's
EPTUD/TUEPD. They always ran in pairs, had clasp brakes on
their heavy-duty trucks (for something as light as helium,
those cars were rather heavy) and went back and forth
between the coast and (I guess) New Mexico where I am told
there are helium mines...just don't ask me how you mine
helium. Outcropping as Helium PentaFlouride?

Whoa Bill, now you're violating rule number one: "It's
my layout and if
you don't like what I'm running, you're excused." I
just love pulling
Heinz "reefers" with the new Atlas Dash 8s I just
bought. I bet they'll
pull a 200 car train without breaking a sweat.


Per your reputation, I expected better from you. At
least have
the guts to pull a unit train of Heinz pickle cars,
instead of mere

Perhaps if Richard Hendrickson ever comes to visit,
you'll let him
run his unit train of helium cars on your layout.
