Oh oh. The new Acela may be in the running now too!Acela.jpg
The "mouth" needs some shark teeth.
Om nom nom, om nom.

No problem, RW - the stay-at-home was getting to some of us...
After a full month this topic is again in my mind...
On that thought after watching videos and pictures posted of the new
Acela train sets I came up with a nickname for them:
"Gators" as in "Alligator" or " Crocodile "
Along with this nickname a 1956 song by Bill Haley and his Comets
came to my mind "See You Later, Alligator (After 'While Crocodile)"
This song is appropriate not just for the nickname - it also has the
subtle thought of "going away" or traveling as part. This is now a
64 year old classic tune from the infancy days of Rock-and-Roll...
Does anyone agree with coining the name "Gators" for the new Acela
train sets as an easy to remember nickname?
