Well I was hoping to get up to Oxford on saturday to get Santa and the train, but I had to work.  But I did get some pics today on my day off.  All of the shots are near the Elkview Bridge. Hope you enjoy

I knew something sounded different today as it went past.  Any idea as to when it happened?

I thought only stuff like that happened in the Big City!?...not Oxford.  
 
I believe the Octoraro had stuff stolen from the yard there in Kennett too several times over the years.
 
Will be nice if someday they can get the track up to shape to run some excursions over the old Octoraro lines...like some steam maybe, with W&W equipment. I miss those trips.
 
Last time a passenger train ran across the bridge was in the 1980's and it was the PRR Gas Car 4662 with a charter.
 
Are the rails and ties still sliding towards the bridge?
 
There is a heavy grade leading downhill to the bridge, and you could tell that was having an effect on the right of way.

Sorry to hear your loss down there on the PERL.  We've had horns stolen off our engines at WCRR in the past, but we have them securely mounted so only a hammer could get it off  .  It is mainly a hispanic population that are there to work in the mushroom farms and other local businesses and the crime from what I've heard from locals in the area has gone up signifigantly over the last 20 years.  When I drove through there with a buddy of mine, there were a lot of suspicious things going on, and this was at 7pm during the summer.  As with the rising prices of horns these days from their popularity with truckers and car modifiers, horns are disappearing off of more and more locomotives.  I would suggest that people start to watch Ebay and other auction places for horns that come out of that area.

There was a problem leading to the bridge in years past (1990's). How about passenger trains on the W&N?

Is the old Southern Pacific B30-7 7836 sitting in Kennett Square operational or is it used for parts to keep the other two B30-7?  I thought of that today as I was driving past there today home from work.

How I've missed a thread on PRL / EPRY for this long, I don't know....
 
Anyways, I saw this thread about the Kodak Kidd and did some web searching.  He sure is well known the the field of destructive art.  Here are some links to things that I found:

http://www.geocities.com/gwanos/TheKodakKidd/TheKodakKidd.html
http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=66212675
 
I don't think that he's a railfan, or he wouldn't be tagging this stuff.  At least he doesn't appear to use lots of paint like some of the other scum.
 
I have some EPRY pictures on my trains webpage:

The most intresting thing about Kodak Kidd is that he uses the more traditional HOBO style of graffitti....more cartoonish, and all in white or black, not too large.  
 
Some of his or her stuff is more along the lines of artistic.  
 
The large crap you see today on most freight cars is just that...CRAP.

KODAK KIDD IS AN A.HOLE FOR DOING THIS STUFF TO OTHERS PROPERTY::  HOW ABOUT IF SOMEONE WOULD  WRITE ON HIS HOUSE OR HIS PROPERTY, WOULD HE STILL BE  ARTISTIC AS YOU CALL IT?  IF YOU AGREE WITH HIM WRITING ON OTHERS PROPERTY YOU ARE JUST AS (RETARTED) excuse me i meant to say mentally handicapped, AS HE IS.
