    Maybe something in the line of "Who left the drain plug open?"

    There are about ten or twelve of these pictures floating around the internet. I had them and lost them during a computer glitch. I will repost all of them for you after I get them back from one of the places I sent them to. My brother-in-law imports fasteners, most of it in multiples of containers. They thought these were interesting to say the least.

    They have a few interesting stories of containers gone astray too. They lost one in the desert out west when it flew off the stack train. They didn't find it for a few weeks!

    I'lll post em up as I get them.

    Omigosh - and I always thought that containers were a modern, clean and safe way to transport goodies around the world! :oops:

    Must have made quite a bang when that stack of containers toppled over! :eek: :eek: :eek:

    Better not send your Steinway concert piano across the ocean in such a box. (Use THE GAUGE BOX instead! :D)

    Looking for a structure to put in that odd corner between tracks on your layout? Here's an idea.

    Thanks guys. I don't have enough to do now and then you bring all these photos out. What are you trying to do, drive me crazy??? (I know, that's not a drive, that's a short putt!!)

    Beautiful photos just filled with temptation for me to drop everything and start building. I'll finish this layout someday but right now I'm busy drooling over all those buildings just waiting for me.

    Have a good day.

    photo

    Thanks, Chris and Shamus. I took that one in Troy, Alabama. The track to the left is the Conecuh Valley Railroad (former Central of Georgia). The track on the right is the CSX (former Atlantic Coast Line) main line from Montgomery.

    I'll try to get some more pictures. There may be a place for it on my layout.:cool:

    Papa Bear's photo

    Here is a close-up of the structure from my earlier post. The Conecuh Valley track passes between this building and the white building on the right.

    I'm saving that picture, thanks for posting it. .:thumb:

    It's simple but it has character and could be just what's needed for a space on a module I'm building.
