Update: the 19 has been loaded and should arrive at IRM this afternoon. It will go over the pit.
They also loaded up parts for the CA&E cars. We'll have more details as they become available, so don't touch that dial!
Just a short note to the readers of this blog (all 2 of you other than Frank and Randy) that I am back safe and sound on the mainland United States.
I spent all but one day of the honeymoon on the island of Kauai, known as the "Garden Island." I managed to visit 1/2 of the rail attractions on the island as part of our touring. Photos, commentary and other information will be forthcoming.
As fall marches on, expect to see more Dave's Depots posts, book reviews, and other "quality" content that you have come to expect from this blog.

We don't have to wait for Christmas to get presents, not at IRM!

Congratulations to David and Katy on their marriage this past Saturday! David has been volunteering at IRM for a few years now and has been a regular contributor to this blog. The wedding was great and we wish the happy couple a fun and relaxing week in Hawaii!

Today is blog founder and fearless Hicks Car Works leader Randy Hicks' birthday; he's turning 39, just as he has for the last 20 years. Seen above is evidence of his longstanding affinity for looking out the doors of railway equipment.
As his son, I feel kind of ashamed - all I got him was a card, but all of YOU who donated to the Trolleyville Fund got IRM two more CA&E wood interurbans for my father to add to his "to-do" list! Who could ask for a better birthday present? A giant thank you to everyone who contributed to the Trolleyville Fund to help preserve these historic CA&E cars!! (And if you want to get in a late birthday gift, we still need donations to help move and house the Trolleyville cars - just click on "Help Protect the Trolleyville Cars" in the upper-right corner of your screen to help out!)
