Proceed with caution

There have been recent reports of a wild animal lurking in the tunnel between Jones River and Resurreccion. So this morning’s 5am freight from Cuarto, pulled by Forney #4, stopped on the bridge while the crew went to investigate.

Yeah, I would have driven the train through to do the investigation too, but these guys took a selection of fire irons (and firearms) with them.

Anyhow, the search proved fruitless so they returned to their train.

By the time they pulled into Resurreccion to advise dispatch by telegraph that the line was clear it was pouring with rain.

It’s OK, the garage roof isn’t really leaking, I’ve just been playing around with photo editing on Ipiccy.
