    <starts picking them up....>

    " Annett, Debbie, Joanne, Terry..."

    "Tommy, Darlene, Bobby, Karen, Cubby, et al". Ah, what a group. Sounds like us.

    Back to the problem at hand. We need to find their mode of transport. I don't have an interchange track yet. How did that pregnant thing get to Virginia? ---unless there really is a Santa Claus --- or UFO's or maybe that Starship just "teleports" it all over the place.

    "Too much time on our hands?" ----Naah, we are solving the mystery of the millenium. :)

    Has anyone been keeping a close eye on the dock at Shamus's fish house? Seems like a likely place for the crates to be leaving Errol's tight little island and heading west:D :D

    Yeah, that sounds good - The Docks.. They start off as tiny, little, passive splinters and are carried by the currents, or the wind... Then

    a couple?

    I've been trying to figure out how and why all those little boxes turned up on my "railroad-to-be" so I looked back a few pages.
    On page 4 Errol posted a picture that shows 2!!! crates- one on end and the other being pushed off the truck. You don't suppose we have a male and female crate here and they are beginning to reproduce like rabbits???:eek: :eek: :eek:

    How did this get started in the first place? And how do you determine the sex of a "Box"? The "Cr(e)ator" must have had something in mind when he put these things on earth.:D How did they survive the Ark? Maybe they were part of the ark. Who knows? Embalming fluid time:)

    I certainly would want to quash it, but this thread has about run its course I think, unless we can smoke out Errol who is hiding out in his local distillery deep in the hills of northern Scotland. We weren't able to bring Shamus into it either, even though his fish house has come under suspicion.

    I for one have gotten some pretty good laughs out of all this. I also think it tend to build some real friendships along the way. I'm here as long as it lasts, even if we are now down to pro(cra)ting. Groan again and again......:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    We might wanna add another thread with just the photos of "boxes". I'm not sure if anyone else besides Shamus has the ability to make it "sticky", though.

    It is a good side splitter. BTW - where is/are the little critter/s now? Maybe the embalming fluid will help them come back.:) :rolleyes:

    Smashed crate!!! You mean it had been into those wee drams of Errol's embalming fluid too:confused: :confused:

    No wonder the crates fell down and broke their crowns, they were drunk:eek: :eek:

    I was seriously thinking about buying some model crates and decals and trying my hand at that part of the hobby. At some point I think I'm going to want to take the current decal off of a Consolidation I have stashed away and re-letter it with whatever I decide on for the name of my branch line. I really wish I could make up my weak mind (no comments please!!). I can't decide between "Boneyard Valley Western: and "Thistle Ridge and Western." Will have to make up my mind one of these days, but hate to rush into things. I've only been thinking about it for a year now:rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Wow this is a long thread!
    Haven't seen "the box" on the Central New England as of yet, but the guy that stenciled it was practicing his art on this fence.
