rayspatsf: Zelda, pics or I don't believe you. :D Sept 11, 2017 10:05:10 GMT -5
pge33: I have two oven related burns. One on my palm, because why wouldn't a cast iron pan be cool enough after an hour.....in a closed oven? The other is on my wrist, from when I took out the pan and hit the rack above. Both healing nicely. Sept 17, 2017 14:25:53 GMT -5
rdc1: OUCH! Sept 17, 2017 19:53:56 GMT -5
rbturner: We need Dave to build some custom Johnson & Johnson boxcars to carry bandaids and Neosporin inside. Sept 19, 2017 9:34:53 GMT -5
dave: OR how about a "No More Tears" shampoo Tyco Triple Tanker? I thought we were tougher than this ;) This is beginning to sound like a "My Little Pony" convention. :D :D :D Sept 19, 2017 11:59:44 GMT -5 *
microbuss: hey Dave I could see that shampoo on a boxcar too Sept 19, 2017 16:22:48 GMT -5
rbturner: I recall seeing a Kotex car Sept 19, 2017 20:43:13 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: I can't unsee that Randy :P Sept 19, 2017 22:46:44 GMT -5
dave: The flea market I routinely hit has a 50 foot refrigerator with Kleenex and another with Huggies, I think. Who wants 'em? Sept 19, 2017 23:00:59 GMT -5
rdc1: Which flea market? I remember when the Green Dragon had a little train shop, but I think it closed. Sept 20, 2017 11:18:11 GMT -5
dave: From time to time someone pops in with trains or at the auction at Green Dragon. The one I hit routinely is in Connellsville, PA when I pass through to visit my wife's hometown in western PA. Sept 20, 2017 15:15:59 GMT -5
rdc1: I used to go to the Green Dragon all the time when I lived closer. I think a pilgrimage is in order. Sept 21, 2017 5:30:29 GMT -5

pokemonprime: Something's up at my school. 7-10 fights within the space of a few hours. We aren't getting a free lunch hour anymore methinks ??? :-[ Sept 21, 2017 11:48:44 GMT -5
rgcw5: so, I strip a green tyco pulpwood car to reveal....it was molded in green :/ Sept 21, 2017 14:31:57 GMT -5
rdc1: (rofl) Sept 21, 2017 17:11:30 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: I just painted a red Tyco pulpwood car (Southern RR) with red oxide primer. The transformation was incredible. Looks like a high-end piece of rolling stock now. Pondering decals for it... Sept 21, 2017 21:05:14 GMT -5
rgcw5: mine are gonna be stockton terminal and eastern, I did a query on duraflame and they are headquartered there so pulpwood to prestologs Sept 21, 2017 22:43:41 GMT -5
pokemonprime: always nice to rebuild some old Tyco stock Sept 22, 2017 5:46:15 GMT -5
dave: Rbturner sent me a PC boxcar that needed TLC, and I had the same one already. I stripped off the paint to find it was a jade colored plastic, and it was repainted a similar jade. Seems like a lot of work to get back to where I started :) Sept 22, 2017 11:48:23 GMT -5
