I think this is a great way to get around when working on the track but I think it needs a coupler so you can tow a tool car and ballast car to the work site.

   Guys,
 
   I got one of the crazyest calls about this thing. Oh, its not a thing, its the TRANSFORMER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
   Well, the call was from a dear friend in the hobby. The only thing he asked me was this, "have you all finnaly lost your minds??" I asked, what do you mean by that ?? He told me that this ' rail scooter' was about the last hing he expected to see at the BCRR. I was laughing so hard I could hardly answer him.
 
   OK, here is the last pic I have of the TRANSFORMER 'rail scooter'. This was just after I unloaded what was left of the old ties, the tamping bars, the power tools, the level, the ballast rake and sundry other supplies. Right outside of Nancy Station next to the hand tool depository.
 
 

 
lol! lol!  ya know, i've got an electric three-wheeler that i've loaned out to a friend.  it's gonna come home in the not-too-distant future...i've got a spare truck....some wheels....wow, we could have scooter races!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA LMFAO!!! Now it's a fact, "THE GUYS AT THE BCRR ARE CERTIFIABLE" from the Jamacan Bob Sled team to this. Do I dare ask? "What's next?" I'm missing out on all the fun.

My plans for a February pilgrimage are firming up.

Bruce,
 
Thanks for the update!  Sounds like it was great fun, wish I could've been there.  Too bad there are som many miles between us.  You guys always seem to do that little extra in all endeavors.  Best of luck on the meeting at the BCRR.  Merry Christmas and Happy Steaming!

Bruce, nice writeup.  Doesn't it make it more fun when a bunch of guys work together to get er done!  Sounds like you guys have a good plan to get ready for the big Un-Meet.  I know saying "keep us posted" is your goal but there are folks outside that want to keep abreast of the doings so keep writing.
