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.

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.

John: When the roads froze in Odessa Texas, I would go find a busy intersection and watch the fools for entertainment.

newbieho: LOL, crosswire and John. 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....

crosswire: That is one way to use Super Beets!

crosswire: TXDOT is trying to use liquid magnesium chloride as a pre-treatment. It works so well, they still use sand!?

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!

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!

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?

JNXT 7707: Well Glenn it's Texas beach water, so it's ten times more corrosive. There you go

rbturner: I did donate that loco. But with the stipulation that when he was done with it went to our pal Nelson.

yardmaster54: So Randy since you were mention in a magazine by name, that kind of makes you a celebrity.
