    That's a great asset to a railroad and super modelling too Mikey.
    Wow! It just ocurred to me.... with only four wheels would it not tend to splash when on the move?? :) :D :D :D :D .
    Couldn't you find a better office for Jon when you promoted him? :D :D :D :D . The least you could do to give it class is to have white-wall wheels ;) :D Go on, pamper him.

    Thanks!! :)

    I was thinking of Jon - but I pick on him enough (Arrrrrgh), so I thought I'd give you a chanch ROFL -- and yeah - I guess being it's like a bobber, It could get a little wet on the floor. :)

    Thanks Again!!

    Hey Mikey,

    seeing your Biffy-Express in motion I had two ideas:

    - By all means provide seat belts (a seat belt harness for a NASCAR racer would be about right)

    - The noise it makes will drown all the sounds escaping the body of the user (now didn't I put this into beautiful words? :D )

    This second remark brings me to a question. Hearing that noise: Could it be that the contraption is powered by BIO-GAS? :eek:

    I thought the noise was a "safety thing" it would make sure the track crews could hear it coming. LOL

    Ya know Mikey, Ya worked so hard givin those LPBs a nice place to let go, ya'd think they would take care of it, maybe paint it once in a while, instead of letting it go to crap. They ever empty the honey bucket?

    In reply to the many suggestions of "unfair treatment" of my LPP's, I have supplied them with reading & wiping materials. LOL
    Also the door has been properly marked. Thanks for the ideas guys!!!!
    The mags are real mags taken from the net & shrunk down & printed - there's even an e-pass from the MF&WRR there on the left side of the floor. :)

    The Sign is hazardous / flammable gas LOL

    Hi Mikey,
    Looking good mate, all you have to do now is teach the LP's to read :D
