SQUEEZING THROUGH
THE COVERED BRIDGE
THE WEDNESDAY GANG - AUGUST 29, 2012

[previous page]
WILL THEY MAKE IT? - Dave and Walt pass the telltales. The signs say
"Clearance Check" and "Wide Loads Detour Here."  But they managed to get
through OK!
KEEP YOUR ARMS AND LEGS INSIDE THE CAR - Well, squeeze
them in anyway.  Sean and Joe had no problem at all.
WHAT'S THE HOLD UP? - Dave is talking to Cliff on the phone,  holding up
traffic.
FINALLY ON THE MOVE - There were two trains waiting behind Dave
and Walt.
DEAD MAN'S CURVE - That's what the sign behind Joe says.  He had a
major crash here a couple months ago, caused by too much laughing and
carrying on!
ALL LIT UP - Number Three's headlight illuminates the covered bridge as
Bob and Joe pass the telltales.  The telltales have side clearance chains as well
as overhead.
CAN'T GET THERE FROM HERE - It takes another two laps before Bob and Dave can get from the covered bridge to the
woodpile.
Carl and Lou charge up the hill.  I don't think they had a
single derailment all night, a rare event when the beer cooler
is nearby.
Joe, Dave, and Dave at Sassafras Junction. We could have put
Dave, Dave, and Dave on the same train but we just didn't think
of it.
Archie and Dick.  Archie hasn't been here for a couple
years.  I don't think these guys derailed all night either.
Dave and Walt.  A few minutes ago, Dave was eating and drinking aboard
the gondola, which he called his "dining car."
NIGHT VISITOR - This is one of four katydids that stopped by for a visit.  
They seemed to like my tee shirt, even though I let them try everyone else's.
