      I thought I read in the discussion forum that the RPO end was supposed to run first.

    1. Only you would spot them Chris. I'm just glad you can't see them from the rear. Lol

  6. Upside-down, I am in the UK: it was inevitable.

    Nice background D!

    It appears the crews did not turn the RPO on this train.

    2. For those interested, there is a great thread going on in the discussion forum regarding the RPO and its orientation in a train.

  7. Maybe you Keith, or Chris, could explain Cricket to me then ? (backchannel) - - - I’ve had one of my best friends, a Brit ex-pat, and a few Jamaicans try, and I’ve even looked it up online - - - the result is always the same - - - I’m left bewildered (Bemildred per the Pogo strips) - - - Cricket is incomprehensible

  8. Too bad the car was consigned eastbound from Dillon: I cannot post a pic of such a train at Leadville.

    Perhaps instead, I should create a cricket pitch on the spot of land next to the depot and adjacent to the D&RGW transfer? If only I had the dimensions....
