    Someone mentioned Ft Eustis? I was stationed there in the early eighties. Real nice post. And yes the Transportation center was there. They had a kinda good Army transportation museum there, complete with troop transports and hospital rail cars from WWII. Along with your basic helicopters, tanks , and some captured Soviet Block (remember them) stuff.
    But as far as boxes marked with The Gauge. Can't recall.

    under construction

    eightyeightfan - you are right about the museum. It even has a couple of older diesels there. It is not too far from Williamsburg and all the history there. Or for those that are more sun-and-fun inclined, Virginia Beach is about 45 minutes east.

    I have done some work on my layout (after cleariing away the boxes) and have a few pictures up in the n/z forum. I have found a place for the "Box" inspection station. Kettlestack, I am told that since we are in the Washington, DC area that the inspection staff is hard to bribe.:D :D If you believe that I also have a bridge to sell you.:rolleyes: :rolleyes

    I guess since I now have track down that I need to start getting transport agreements for passage of the mysterious cargo that keeps appearing around the country.

    Back to work. :) :)

    Oh my goodness.....did you see that "Tazmanian Devil" notice? :eek::eek: How do you suppose that got there? And do you think there could be a little bit of leakage of the drams inside that might be causing that gurgling? :D :D What will the inspectors say?

    I agree 100%

    My daughter-in-law saw this thread yesterday and thinks we have been hitting the "wee drams" a bit much. She concurred with someones spouse that said "it sounds like we have too much time on our hands."

    Has Kettlestack seen how the Box is getting moved around. He may need to retrieve it to "reseal" the fluids.

    In the last episode of "the box", we saw the box beginning to blow off the back of truck, presumably at high speed!

    [​IMG]

    Oops.

    [​IMG]





    Andy: So, you found this blim blammin' big boinkin' box, and yer boss said not to touch it or the truck, so you swiped the truck and the box. Where is the the box now?

    Paulsen: It's rat therins the backa thu, uh, erm, eeeee, oops.

    [​IMG]





    Meanwhile, back on Highway 114...

    [​IMG]


    Well, at least it appears intact







    Wank-Wank-Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaank




    [​IMG]

    erm, uh, oops. Blim Blam. To be continued...

    I do not mind the Guards, what scares the bejezuz outta us is the guys with the axes.......

    And not only is there a sherrif from the good ol' US, dey also called in what appears to be a RCMP !!!!

    Now not only are they guarding the crate of the MF&W RR, but the blim blammin' authorities got our Brand New - one and only crane tied up!!!!!:mad: :mad:

    [​IMG]

    And dey will NOT leave us near neither "The Crate" Nor the Crane!! $#@%$#&^%*&)(&*^%



    Stop smilin' -- It aint' funny no more.......

    I says Stop Smilin' :mad:

    Now, the conclusion of The Box, on highway 114...

    [​IMG]

    Virgil: Dat beeeg truck smashed the box, then I swear, I sawed this furry tornado come out and run off into the woods. I swear, I seeded it wit me own eyeballs! Then when Paulsen came back to get 'is box, it come up outa them woods and chased him around til he runed out in the road and Old Man Knudson ranned him over! It was an act of God!

    [​IMG]

    While no one believed Virgil, and everyone just knew Knudson did in Young Paulsen in a rage, it was never proven in a court of law. Everyone on Hiughway 114 says OMK paid him not to talk, and the funny thing is, he got him a new doublewide that very week.


    Old Man Knudson: I loved him like my own son!

    [​IMG]

    The End, well, at least for that snot nosed kid Paulsen!
