Thanks, I wouldn't dare go near it--there might be trip wires ...

100% this. We had a couple guys that could bring absolutely any thread around to "why don't we put the turboliners in revenue service again". Seriously, if we had a thread about UP 4014's restoration, one guy would be like "speaking of 4014, it runs on rails and I love turboliners and why don't we bring them back to service"... It was that bad.
But you are welcome and encouraged to discuss anything historic (IE anything turboliner that has already happened - could be 1975, could be yesterday), and any news about where they're going or stored.
