Re: More about Freight Conductors' Train Book, 1938


Well Tony, sort of a combination.? I realized my error after I wrote it but sent it anyway to see the reaction and make the most of it.? You caught it too quick.? Since reefers were involved I expected to get a little more mileage out of it.?

Chalk the whole thing up to inhaling too many fumes from MEK while trying to assemble the bridge from hades.

Unless Rich has tongue violently thrust into cheek, he is
confusing "bullion" with "bouillon."
