Today while waiting for a brown train, I noticed a Midway train with digital roll signs on #3208 and its mate. The signs look similar but not identical to those on the 5000's.

I was pleasantly surprised he still recognized me, had grown a beard by that time!),Good story. I have that happen on the South Shore about once a year - some old hand remembers me as a kid in the 80's or 90's. Also, when Frosty's Ribs re-opened after a ten year hiatus in Michigan City, Frosty remembered me as the little kid that watched South Shore trains go by from his restaurant.
