Gold touching $2,000oz. If it gets any higher I've already contacted Flintlock to go prospecting with me.  Anyone else want to come along, I'll show you all the tricks! 

It sure worked for this guy. Would have been able to hear the whistles day and night from that location!

Sure looks like Mr. Schwabs house was a railfans dream come true!

Good story of a self-made man.  This country certainly wasn't built by the whiners and self-pitying. No successful country is. Hard words I know, but they're true ones.
