Railroading and my family history
« on: May 25, 2012, 06:48:33 PM »
Recently there has been interest in my interest in locomotives.

As I mentioned, I come from a long line of proud railroad men.


Here then are some photos of the men , locomotives, and the rails they 'shined the shellack' on from my family's line.  ;)


1864 -






1884 -








1894 -






1898 -






1902 -










1905 -






1916 -






1930 -






1941 -






1944 -







And in closing, railroad men always love to take the high road whenever possible.  ;D

The best part of railroading is the spectacular view -  ;D









Which sometimes got really spectacular -








24 June 1947 - Joliet, Illinois - 1:50 P.M. CST

Chicago Times (6/27)
 

Railroad engineer Charles Kastl saw a peculiar formation of nine flat, circular objects "going faster than any planes I ever saw” in a stretched out line formation at about 4,000 feet flying north to south.

"I could see no connecting link between them," Kastl reported, "but they acted as though the leading disc had a motor in it to power the others, because when it flipped, the others would, too.

When it would right itself, the others would right themselves."

When asked by newsmen if he had been drinking, he answered sternly, "I was on my way to work, and you know a railroad man never touches the stuff on or before duty hours."

His friends and neighbors all agreed that Kastl was not the sort of man given to telling tall stories.

I couldn't help but be concerned about who You are????, as We recently had an horrendous train crash involving a mikado that wrecked the place.
http://media.photobucket.com/image/train%20wreck/texaslady1960/train-wreck.jpg?o=2

We had already experienced a previous similer steam related incident when.. Paul on the road to finishing His book... sucked up mud into His tubes whilst stuck on a mud bank.
He opened His blowdown valve and ran out of steam .

You can't be too carefull with steam, when it transmutes from one appearance to another, it can seriously damage anywhere.

I can't claim to come from a railroad family, but my family did support the Union Pacific Railroad.  I come from a long line of coal miners, many of who, worked for the Union Pacific Coal Company.  My parents were both born and raised in UP Coal Company towns in Wyoming.  On a a sadder note, my great-grandfather and my great-uncle Pat were both killed by trains.  Great-grandpa Pat used to walk the rail lines from Bucklin to Bevier in Missouri.  He was hit by a train on his final walk.  Great-uncle Pat was in the 31 Transportation Corps in WWI.  He was hit by a train and killed in France.

Well since Mikado the Destroyer won't receive emails he cannot accept the registration :D

But as to the transmutation of steam, remember that the Law of Attraction states that you will attract that which you wish for.

Those that live their lives thinking about all the bad things that will happen, manifest those bad things in their lives and then wonder why they happen to them all the time...

My wife is a perfect example... you can feel the negative bubble around her.

If you stand on a street corner and put in your mind... "I want to see how many VW Beetles are out there" you will suddenly be aware of just how many VW's there are on the road any given day  And from then on for weeks you will see VW beetles everywhere.

Same too with Black Trains.... think about them and they shall find you...

However the same energy can be directed to banish them... this is an old "Illuminati Secret"

If I could teach but ONE thing to people it would be this

A51.... in your " spectacular" train tracks photo.... could that possibly be...... the track just outside of Williams.... Headed East toward Flagstaff??? If not it bears a remarkable resemblance.....

Interesting area Williams.

Zorgon,
TRANSMUTATION.
Sort of a mix between trains and stations????

IMHO, if We could figure out the process of transmutaion of water to ice and to steam, and back to water , We could crack time travel.

Nothing moves except by re-location in time.
A steam train creates a vacuum that re-locate the piston attachd to the wheel , which enables the wheel to spin and thus transfer the re-location to the train.
Pressure/vacuum.
The Railroad of time.
Two opposing spirals going in phase conjugate relationship to each other, with one at a fraction different diameter of spiral.
A pressure of time, versus a vacuum of time.
Both acting under attraction.
The serpent biting it's own tail.

A black train on a low loader was brought into My shop today , which I purchased.....laughing to Myself.
A matchbox.
The hobbit did good, I paid 20 pounds, it's never been out of it's box

We could crack time travel.

Heck we already have :D  I have a paper on it using Stargates from the Air Force Research Lab :P

And the Army is using Looking Glass tech to see where bullets are GOING to come from.

But time travel in the wrong hands will be a very bad thing. Already the timelines are all messed up and we are jumping them daily

SOOO, the big question is: WAS THE STARGATE PROGRAM a remote viewing program or a star gate program?  don't say both or i'll post another video lol
