    O.k. so i've been noticing a trend in my behavior. Everytime i see a train i think "what would that look like on my layout" :0. hehehe not only that but i've been noticing trains everywhere. It's almost like when you are going to buy a car and all of a sudden you notice that everyone else had the same idea haha and the same car is everywhere.

    I started carrying my camera w/ me and i snapped a couple photos. It was supposed to be of the mu of csx engines (they looked like dash 8-40b the 4 axle ones) but by the time i could whip out the camera and not crash into the peopl enext to me this is what i got:
