Shoutbox

crosswire: In the Houston, if the truck will start, we just run it at 80 mph and let the sand blow out. No, wait a minute, all the trucks over here do that, regardless of the weather. Sept 15, 2021 8:29:09 GMT -5
TK Dave: (rofl) Sept 15, 2021 18:09:20 GMT -5
John: Houston did not sand the roads back in the 80's. I was there one winter when the overpasses iced. There were three wrecks on both sides on every overpass. Sept 15, 2021 21:00:19 GMT -5 *
John: When the roads froze in Odessa Texas, I would go find a busy intersection and watch the fools for entertainment. Sept 15, 2021 21:06:30 GMT -5
newbieho: LOL, and . We are too chicken in Michigan. The roads are salted and sanded, and now beet-juiced often. Love the effect on the undercarriage of vehicles.... ??? Sept 16, 2021 4:59:17 GMT -5
The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: Beet juice is a de-icer? Who knew... Sept 16, 2021 7:08:21 GMT -5
crosswire: That is one way to use Super Beets! Sept 16, 2021 7:47:35 GMT -5
crosswire: TXDOT is trying to use liquid magnesium chloride as a pre-treatment. It works so well, they still use sand!? Sept 16, 2021 7:49:01 GMT -5
umpdan31: Eat the red snow/ice but not the yellow snow/ice Sept 16, 2021 8:54:20 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: Frankly, I'd prefer TXDOT to stick with sand or just go hide under the bed when winter comes. Salt-less roads is one of the positives of living in the southwest! Sept 16, 2021 14:46:33 GMT -5
Prof. G-Money, Esq.: …and the Southeast too! Sept 16, 2021 23:18:13 GMT -5
Prof. G-Money, Esq.: All my old cars still have rocker panels! Sept 16, 2021 23:19:28 GMT -5
crosswire: Rocker panels? I guess you do not drive on Texas beaches. Sept 17, 2021 7:25:41 GMT -5
Prof. G-Money, Esq.: Nope, never done that...What will a Texas beach do to rocker panels? Sept 17, 2021 12:17:08 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: Texas beach = salt water. Sept 17, 2021 15:07:44 GMT -5
Prof. G-Money, Esq.: North Carolina beach = salt water. Given the Texan propensity for grandioseness, I figured there must be something more to it than that! Sept 18, 2021 18:14:56 GMT -5
yardmaster54: RT, I just read an article about the Rivarossi era in the 2019 1st quarter of the HO Collector magazine. Tony Lucio gave a shout out to Randy Turner for donating a Rivarossi styrene and wire Chicago and Northwestern C liner. Would that be you Randy? Sept 18, 2021 19:46:53 GMT -5 *
JNXT 7707: Well Glenn it's Texas beach water, so it's ten times more corrosive. There you go :) Sept 18, 2021 21:42:22 GMT -5
rbturner: I did donate that loco. But with the stipulation that when he was done with it went to our pal Nelson. Sept 19, 2021 8:15:04 GMT -5
yardmaster54: So Randy since you were mention in a magazine by name, that kind of makes you a celebrity. ;) Sept 19, 2021 11:11:25 GMT -5
