Dana, I have a word for auto correct that is not as nice as darned. No doubt about it, auto correct was invented by an embittered typing teacher who was laid off because not enough kids were enrolling for the class, and it is clearly designed to torture hunt-and-peck typists who have to keep their eyes on the keyboard. >:(

Well my hat's off to you, Jon! Sure looks like they're for hanging hats.

It looks as though the fourth and fifth rings in from the righthand edge of the picture might have had drinking cups in them--such as Dixie cups, with the axes of the cups horizontal, at the time the picture was taken, but I doubt that is what the rings were intended for.

Bill, can you tell us the RR and the town? From the pictures I'd guess that people were injured at the very least.

I thought I logged onto the WW&F Forum, but I guess I got Comedy Central instead. ;D Mike, thanks so much for the pictures! I hope nobody got frostbite.

Congratulations to all who painted! The utter lack of dribbles, splatters etc. amazes me. Wonderful end result!

Thank you very much, Graham. Sounds much better than Photobucket.

Thanks a bunch, Photobucket. Didn't expect you to plaster your logo, or whatever that is, on top of a nice photo. Oh well.

Perhaps volunteers will enjoy this elegant velocipede on the First-Museum Railway southeast of Bremen, Germany. The photo, taken about six years ago, is from WW&F member Wolf-Jobst Siedler, wearing his conductor’s uniform, and observing as his son, Tobias, greets riders.

Thank you for this bit of history, Bill. The day you discovered the Maine 2 footers turned out to be a fortunate day indeed for the WW&F Railway Museum!

Bill, when I click on the link for the first video, I get a black YouTube screen marked "Private Video". The second video plays with no problem.
