When it comes to sand trains on the southern, IMHO, everyone here ought to just take a break. AFAIK, all the track work south of lakewood that has been done so far, has been use of "use it or lose it" money. So of course they are going to use it. I dont think it is any indication of use of the track being immanent.

It doesn't matter which side of the tracks you're from, the train still rolls the same.

Anybody know why after Shrewsbury Ave. they blow their horn a couple of times really fast? I've noticed that a lot.

Yeah, the tracks are in really bad condition from Sycamore to Shrewsbury.

Right, I meant to say no working FRED, which is the same as no FRED.
