    That fellow looks to be in a second floor office and looking out the window.

    He's on the 3rd floor and he is
    1. surveying his domain
    2. watching the train go by in the cut across the road
    3. waiting for his secretary so they can get busy
    4. looking at you looking at him
    5. waiting for his computer to boot
    6. picking his seat
    7. admiring his reflection in the window and how good he looks in his white leisure suit.
    8. waiting for his secretary to get out of the bathroom so he can go...bad tacos last night.
    9. peeping tom
    10. listening to STYX sing "To Much Time On My Hands".

    That's my top 10. FRED

    Everywhere one looks in your pics there's something to see that hadn't been noticed before.

    Keep 'em coming fred.

    Errol my friend, you asked for it bud. Asking me to post more pictures is like asking an alcoholic if he wants another drink. :D :D :D And RC, there is no higher praise than that. :oops: This ones called putin' in a drive shaft because Dodges make to much horsepower. FRED

    Hmmm. Let's see. A '67 Charger, equipped with (judging from the fender badge) a 426 Hemi.

    Yep. Sounds right. :thumb: Nice work, Fred!

    Working Signals

    I just completed a working signal tower from a Lifelike? toy one. I used three color LEDs and use a rotary switch to change them. No block signals at this time. Here's a loco waiting for the green.

    Ain't it against ICC rules to tote passengers while acting as a pusher? You have been duly cited by the Model Railroading Paradox/Anachronism Police :eek: My kids have posted your bail. :D

    Love that signal tower :thumb: :thumb:
