    Hey... I know that truck!
    That's my girl... Bobbie Joe; Yes my truck
    has a name.

    Larry is right, it was LOADS OF FUN!!
    (or is that Eoads... :p )

    He forgot to mention that first shot was
    on the second day. Which was very cold
    (for me) and very windy. We weren't
    leaning on the building... that's where
    the wind put us!:eek:

    I'll have pics some time Friday. Got a
    class at the club tonight. Which puts me
    home at 11. Very tired then.

    Sorry you missed it Brakie.
    I think my post on it got buried.
    Get with Railohio, he was the guide...
    or maybe you can think of a gather for Gaugers else where.

    The only reason I made it is because my grandma is to have
    surgery. So I toke my mom up to see her mom and it ended up a
    double Mother's Day gift to them. I just got lucky and used their
    girl time to sneek off and watch some trains, and shoot the breeze.

    I was out there a few years back. What a great area for railfanning. Deshler has that nice park right in the middle of the interlocking, that big old station, a tower and a crossing. What more could you ask for?
