    Yesterday a new loco showed up on the Federal Furnace Lines, and it is a C44-9W in Warbonnet paint. It is one handsome machine, and a great running one too. It seems to be a bit on the underweight side for real pulling but does a good job. In slow operations it is great. I can let it creep along so slow that you would think it is going to stop, and it is a quiet as a mouse.

    Now Catt don't get all excited at this... but I think this unit makes Atlas locos look like plastic boxes. Now so you will know... we have 40 Atlas locos on the Federal Furnace Lines, but if Kato keeps this up we will soon be moving towards them. You may now uncurl your claws Catt... LOL....

    Catt and I are good friends that have learned to disagree on things like all gentlemen do... We argue like hell... LOL
