Schuyler Larabee chides:
Actually, Richard, with all due respect (and there's quite a bit due) I thinkSchuyler, there's a lot of past history behind my reaction, which I won't
bore you (or other list subscribers) with, but in my own defense I'll just
say that I don't think those who are familiar with that past history will
consider my post to be excessively contentious. I hope my "take" on the
forthcoming meeting is wrong, and if it is, I"ll be the first to say so.
But at this point I'm not optimistic. Now, back to steam era freight cars.
