No dairy?  Closest I can come is a hog pen.

Show me a red truck (vehicle).  Don't have a red one?  Then any color will do!

Hmmmm... photo not showing.  The web host I use has been having problems lately, but that's ok.  My request is for the truck.

Wait! here's some souvenirs of my trip to Canada and Alaska.

A bit further than most of you would need to go. About7,368 miles to Vancouver from my home town here in Oz.

Time is up in the Christmas Garden

Today on the Maine coast started out with freezing drizzle Grumpy, so I am thinking of something warm like the summer barbecue at the park on the Boothbay layout

Show me a blue locomotive (makes me think of the cold weather outside)

A little too specific Ken. How about any loads....

Here's a couple of heavy loads on a depressed flat car.

 

Let's see some more loads, any kind of loads....

I can understand someone wanting coal from Santa Claus.  I once asked Santa for a bundle of switches.

We have tons of coal. About 23 tons to be exact. The coal saves us about $200/day over natural gas.

Once every week or 8 days, with the regular arrival of the banana "boat," a solid trainload of banans heads north from Karankawa (my version of Galveston, Texas).

Show me a rail movement that is somehow coordinated with a ship sailing schedule.

Nobody operates a rail movement coordinated with a ship schedule?  Then show me anything railroady connected with a ship or harbor.

Nobody has " anything railroady connected with a ship or harbor"?  Or maybe they are all busy setting up the train around the Christmas tree.

Shall we broadeen the topic to:
Show me anything railroady in a state that has a coastline.

Let's try a picture looking down the main line of the Boothbay RR Village layout on the back side of the fishing village. A BAR freight heading for the bridge.

Show me a winter scene...(even if it's in someplace like Florida Cool)
