    Saturday we got joking at the LHS about how trains are better than women (or men). Here are some of the ones of mine I could remember:

    Trains don't care if you turn them on, give them a quick run, then go to sleep.

    Trains don't nag you to re-arrange the room.

    Trains don't care if you come home with a new engine.

    Trains don't have a fit if you play with other trains.

    Trains don't have a fit if you spend $300 for a new engine.

    Trains don't mind if you share them with friends.

    Trains don't care if you never take them anywhere.

    Trains don't yell at you if you come home late and did not call first.

    Trains don't worry if all you do is run them in circles.

    Trains never ask, "Does this make my caboose look big?"

    Trains never splend $1000 on the Home Shopping Network for clothes.

    ---

    Any additions?

    OMG that is toooooo funny!
    :D :D :D :D :D :D

    Can't resist something for the girls' side - why model trains are better than men:

    If a model is a loco - that's a good thing.

    If a train is switching - ditto

    If you ask them to run into town they don't complain "But I was just there!"

    It doesn't matter how long they are.

    They stay coupled for as long as you want.

    cheers
    ;) Val

    I wouldn't be too sure about that one. At my age, having the washer, and dryer relocated, beats the heck out of a "duck-under"!! :D :D :D

    The allegheny, 2-6-6-6, had a larger fire box, larger boiler,weighed more, and had a higher tractive effort than the 4-8-8-4 Big Boy!........... The Big Boy was LONGER, therefore, the worlds biggest locomotive!.......Go figure :D :D :D

    :D :D :D :D Val, still laughing!!!:D

    Tyson, you are going to bring that jug over here. This side splitting stuff needs a "shot of relief:) :)

    And "coupling" is done in the open:D

    a few more:

    You can fool with your trains even if they are in Traction.

    Trains are always waiting for you to turn them on.

    Trains never have a headache.

    This one works for both sexes:

    Having a nice caboose is a plus.

    Val you GO girlfreind!!

    Theres a song by Michelle Shocked called 'If love was train'....'I think I'd ride me a long one' wish I could find the rest of the lyrics.


    Wipes tears of laughter.... lololol


    Found 'em....lol

    If love was a train
    I think I would ride a slow one
    One that would ride thru the night
    Making every stop
    If love was a train
    I would feel no pain and I would never get off

    If love was a train
    I think I would ride me a long one
    Hear me talking
    I'm talking fifty boxcars long
    Aw, what's the use?
    Most trains these days
    Ain't got no engine
    Much less a caboose woo woo!

    I was going to ask something but finding a way to put it a family friendly way is impossible.

    Oh well, on a some what serius note:

    Was the 2-6-6-6 wider than the 4-8-8-4?

    here are a couple of more for the crew:D

    Trains don't want babies.

    Trainss don't notice if you call them by another name.

    If another train looks great, your train won't hate it.

    When an train gets old and broken down, you can just throw it away and get a new one!!!

    ROFL -- Great Stuff!!!!!

    ~~ When you put your Caboose on a scale - it doesn't have "issues"

    ~~ Engines don't "get sick" once a month

    ~~ a tender will NEVER complain that your driving too fast :) :)
